The National Commission for Women (NCW) has taken cognisance of the sexist remark made by Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan and sent a notice to him.

Senior Samajwadi Party (SP) leader and MLA from Rampur constituency Azam Khan stooped even lower than his usual low self by making utterly outrageous comments against BJP Lok Sabha candidate from Rampur, Jyada Prada. Khan in his speech while speaking at a public rally outrightly denied the allegations levelled by Jaya Prada against him. He even swore on his late mother saying that none of the allegations were true. But the next moment he proved himself wrong by making a highly derogatory remark against Prada.

Watch the video for Azam Khan’s shameful statement on Jaya Prada:

Full video of Azam Khan’s speech at Rampur:

Addressing the people of Rampur he said that they could not recognise her (Prada’s) reality in 17 years while it only took him 17 days. “Uski asliayat samajhne me apko 17 baras lagey. Main 17 din me pehchan gaya ke inke niche ka jo underwear hai woh khaki rang ka hai (It took 17 years for you to recognise her reality. But it took me only 17 days to recognise that the colour of her underwear is Khaki)”, commented Khan trying to suggest that Prada had links with the RSS and the allegations against him were an RSS conspiracy.

SP President and former Uttar Pradesh CM Akhilesh Yadav was also present on the stage when Khan made such insulting remarks against Prada. Khan said that he had introduced Prada to Rampur holding her fingers and made sure that no one even got closer to her or said something bad about her. “Kisi ka Kandha nahi lagne diya uske shareer se, chhoone nahi diya, gandi baat nhi karne di”, he said.

Jaya Prada has been on the receiving end of sexist and misogynist remarks since she joined the BJP. Last month, Azam Khan‘s close aide named Firoz Khan had used similar language for Prada saying that the residents of Rampur would remain entertained and their evenings would be ‘colourful’ because Jyada Prada would be visiting the district frequently for campaigning for the Lok Sabha elections.

Jaya Prada who was earlier in SP, had alleged that Azam Khan had attempted an acid attack on her and she was not certain whether she would be alive the next day. Prada, while speaking at a rally yesterday, said that she had complained to SP patriarch Mulayam Singh that Azam Khan was spreading her morphed pictures in Rampur but no one came out in her support.

NCW chairperson said that Khan always says dirty things about women and in this election this is his second statement he has given against women politician. The NCW has taken a suo moto against him and has even written to the Election Commission to take strict action against him.
