Lucknow: Samajwadi Party leader and UP's Urban Development Minister Azam Khan on Thursday said that he is the most hated person in society while also accusing his detractors of defaming him.
Speaking at a e-rickshaw distribution event at Janeshwar Mishra park in Lucknow, Khan said that though he is a clean and honest person from within, people despise him.
“I have been honest enough to always accept my mistakes if any before public and seek an apology but my detractors have left no stone unturned to defame me for no reason. I prefer to be quite as I want this world to be a better place to live in," The Times of India quoted him as saying.
He further quoted Mahatma Gandhi's words that if all turn violent and pelt stones on each other, the world wouldn't be safe to live any more.
