Azam Khan Bursts Into Tears, Claims 'The Administration Would Have Killed Him Had it Been Within Limits of Their Power'

New Delhi: Days after Election Commission (EC) took action against Azam Khan for his sexist remarks on BJP candidate Jaya Prada, the Samajwadi Party leader burst into tears and alleged that the administration is treating him like an anti-national or a traitor.  “They are treating me as if I am the biggest terrorist in this world. Had it been within the limits of their power, the administration would have openly killed me by firing a shot at me,” said Khan while addressing a public rally at Rampur .

He added,”The three-day ban by Election Commission just ahead of the elections implies what they want to do. During the ban I cannot go anywhere, I cannot meet anyone, nor participate in rallies and public addresses.”

Khan also alleged that “Rampur has been converted into a cantonment”. “What kind of democracy is this, in Rampur the administration has unleashed a reign of terror. The locks of the houses of those who love me and carry my flag were broken and women of their families were misbehaved with,” said Khan. (Also read: ‘Will Show Azam Who Bajrang Bali is,’ Says Giriraj Singh)

The Election Commission on Monday barred Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Azam Khan from election campaigning for 72 hours starting from 10 AM Tuesday, for violating Model Code of Conduct during his election campaign held in Rampur. Khan was under the poll panel’s lens for making derogatory remarks against Jaya Prada.

Without taking any names, Khan had said,”People of Rampur, people of Uttar Pradesh and people of India, it took you 17 years to understand her reality. But, I could recognise it in 17 days that she wears ‘khaki’ underwear. (Rampur waalo, Uttar Pradesh waalo, Hindustan waalo, usski asliyat samajhne mein aapko 17 baras lag gaye. Main 17 dinon mein pehchaan gaya ki inke neeche kaa jo underwear hai, woh khaki rang kaa hai).”
