Azam Khan

Naqvi allegedly used the name of popular Bollywood villain "Mogambo" while referring to Khan during a public rally here on Monday, in the wake of the latter's 'Khaki underwear' remark towards actor-turned-politician and his BJP opponent from Rampur Lok Sabha seat, Jaya Prada.

The poll body’s action came hours after it similarly barred UP CM Yogi Adityanath from campaigning for 72 hours and Mayawati for 48 hours.

Amit Shah tore into Azam Khan for his ‘lewd comments’ against party candidate Jaya Prada and demanded apology from Samajwadi Party (SP) and its ally Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) over his derogatory comments.

Asserting that he did not name anyone, the Samajwadi leader told ANI that he would withdraw his candidature from the ongoing polls if proved guilty.

NCW chairperson said "Women are not sex objects. I think, women voters should vote against such kind of people who are treating women in such way."

"I am disappointed. Media did not like me; I also did not like them. They have caused damage to the country," he said.

Azam Khan claimed he made the remarks in the context of a "man" who had apparently said that "he brought 150 rifles with him" and if he sees Azam Khan, he would shoot him. Without naming who he was referring to Azam Khan said, "Now, it has been revealed that he has an RSS pant on his body. Shorts are worn by men."

Actor-turned-politician Jaya Prada on Saturday hit out at Azam Khan and said she had considered the Samajwadi Party (SP) leader as her brother but he has always wished ill for her and insulted her.

In an FIR on March 29, the complainant alleged that Khan gave a provocative and derogatory speech at his party office against the district officer, sub-divisional magistrate, additional district magistrate and district magistrate.
