Lucknow: In a bid to win back Muslim
votes, Samajwadi Party is trying to woo back expelled leader
Mohammad Azam Khan.
"Azam Khan is a founder member of the party. He was
expelled due to some reasons. We are in touch with him and
talks are on," Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav
told reporters in reply to a question.
Khan, once a close confidante of Mulayam Singh, was
expelled from the party when he raised voice against Mulayam`s
friendship with former BJP leader Kalyan Singh.
Khan, who was party`s National General Secretary,
opposed Jaya Prada`s candidature from Rampur in Lok Sabha
polls and was also not in good terms with expelled SP leader
