Samajwadi Party candidate from Rampur Azam Khan, who is known for using foul languages during the election campaign was yet again caught on camera making disrespectful comments against Jaya Prada. A complaint has been filed against Azam Khan, he has also been asked to explain his comment by National Commission for Women.
During a rally on Sunday, he had said, “…the underwear beneath is of the khakhi colour” in comments that were assumed to be directly directed towards his former colleague Jaya Prada. at actor-turned-politician Jaya Prada, his former colleague.
This is not the first time when Azam Khan has used appalling words. Earlier to this, he has called Jaya Prada a ‘naachnewaali’. Jaya Prada in the past has spoken about how she attempted suicide after her indecent and morphed images were circulated. She even accused Azam Khan of planning an acid attack on her.
According to reports, Jaya Prada who has recently joined BJP will be fielded against Azam Khan in Rampur. It will not be wrong to say that Jaya and Azam are not just arc rivals in politics but they are also real-life enemies.
This comes after Jaya Prada in an interview said Padmaavat’s Khilji reminded her of Azam Khan, to which Azam Khan replied back saying, “Tell me, if I entertain this ‘naachne gaane wali’, how will I concentrate on politics?”
Jaya Prada has joined politics back in 1994, jumping and hopping numerous political parties in her two-decade political career. Well, is it fair to still call her actor-turned-politician?
Now that Jaya Prada has joined the Bhartiya Janata Party, it will be interesting to see why she matters in our Indian politics. Or, maybe does she really matter- because we hear anything about her only when she hops into another party, or when there is a controversy lingering around?
Jaya Prada made entry into politics with NT Rama Rao’s Telegu Desam Party in 1994. However, when NT Rama Rao’s son-in-law, N Chandrababu Naidu took over the responsibility of TDP, things started to get sour in the party.
Jaya Prada stood by NTR’s side and then she was nominated to the upper house(Rajya Sabha) from Andhra Pradesh in 1996.
Later, in 2004 she joined Samajwadi Party and was contesting election from Rampur in Uttar Pradesh, and won. But, why did she leave TDP? As per reports, she was sidelined in Chandrababu Naidu’s party. “There I was sitting on the dais. Chandrababu Naidu did not even mention my name. I felt awkward,” she reportedly said later.
Then in 2009 Lok Sabha Election, she accused Azam Khan of making indecent remarks against her. She was traumatized by the whole incident but won the election. A year later, Jaya Prada, along with Amar Singh, were expelled from the Samajwadi Party for some ‘anti-party activities’.
Jaya Prada’s alliance with Amar Singh leads us to another controversy. She said, “Even if I tie rakhi to Amar Singh, people will talk about us”.
Azam Khan is a known offender now, a misogynist politician and lowest level of politician India has ever produced. He is also the same man who has said that RSS workers are homosexuals, there exists a secret tunnel between madam Irani’s and PM’s bungalows.
So, it’s time to brace yourself for below the belt comments making its way in Rampur election.
