In yet another controversy for Azam Khan, a video of the Samajwadi Party leader has emerged in which he can be heard hurling abuses in front of school kids in Uttar Pradesh's Rampur district. In the video, that now has gone viral, the controversial SP leader can be seen getting irritated at the traffic while sitting in his car, following which he hurled abuses in front of children on the way.
Reportedly, a tractor turtled on the way due to which Azam Khan's car got stuck in the traffic. He was then caught on camera shouting and abusing in front of the children.
The video has come up only hours after the Election Commission sent another notice to Azam Khan demanding answers on his "highly objectionable" speeches in various parts of Rampur during the Lok Sabha elections.
"Your explanation shall be submitted within 24 hours of the receipt of this Notice, failing which the Commission shall take a decision without further reference to you," the notice said.
Prior to this notice, the poll body imposed a 72-hour prohibition on his election campaigning for his reprehensible "khaki-underpants" comment against BJP candidate Jaya Prada. He has been barred from holding public meetings, public processions, public rallies, road shows and interviews, public utterances in media (print, electronic and social media) for 72 hours.
Along with the punishment, an FIR under Section 509 of IPC and Section 125 of Representation of the People Act, 1951 has been lodged against the senior SP leader for his 'indecent' and 'repugnant' comment against Jaya Prada.
On April 14, former minister Azam Khan made a below the belt 'khaki' comment on Jaya Prada, who is set to contest the election against Azam Khan from Rampur constituecy in the poll.
"I brought her (Jaya Prada) to Rampur. You are a witness that I did not allow anyone to touch her body. It took you 17 years to identify her real face but I got to know in 17 days that she wears khaki underp****," said Khan while addressing an election rally in Meerut.
