Rampur: Stirring a fresh controversy, Samajwadi Party leader and Uttar Pradesh Urban Development Minister Azam Khan on Thursday took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying that how can a person talk about daughters when he has not even given due recognition to his wife.

Continuing the personal tirade against the PM, Khan said: “The king (read Modi) brought his mother home. Once he brings his wife back, we will be thankful to him.”

He further said that the PM talks about sending minority community to Pakistan, but goes to the Islamic nation without informing us. “The king (read Modi) touches the feet of (Pakistan Prime Minister) Nawaz Sharif's mother and shakes his hand with traitors in a closed room,” reports Aaj Tak.

 

Taking on the PM on the beef ban issue, the SP leader said the ruler of the country should get the meat from cattle prohibited in five-star hotels, or else leave the post.

 

On the Kairana 'exodus' issue, the Samajwadi Party leader raised suspicion about the BJP's role. “The BJP wants Gujarat-like riots. The party, on the insistence of the RSS, has conspired big-scale riots in western Uttar Pradesh,” he alleged.

 

Khan was in Rampur to distribute 391 e-rickshaws.
