Azam Khan swears by Allah’s name: ‘Will make collectors clean our shoes’

Khan was seen saying to his supporters that 'Inshallah', we will make collectors clean shoes as they used to when Mayawati was in power.

Samajwadi Party’s senior leader and Ram Pur Lok Sabha candidate Azam Khan had made extremely distasteful and sexist remarks against his political opponent and BJP candidate Jaya Prada. Today, he is out giving other statements on how is he going to deal with government officials after he comes back to power.

In a video, Azam Khan is seen speaking to the public during an election campaign. He is seen saying, “Do not be afraid of collectors. They are salaried employees. Nobody should bother about a salaried government employee. Have you seen how such big officers used to clean Mayawati’s shoes with their handkerchief? We have an alliance with Mayawati. If god wishes so, we will also make these collectors clean our shoes.”

Khan, whose shameful remarks against Jaya Prada has drawn severe criticism from all quarters yesterday, is not new to such statements. Neither is he new to misusing the state machinery for menial jobs. In early 2014, after some buffaloes were stolen from his farmhouse in Rampur, Khan had sent the entire police hierarchy, including DSP and other senior officers in Rampur, to search for his buffaloes.

In a sting operation by India Today, it was revealed that Khan had asked police officers not to do anything in the Muzaffarnagar riots. Officers had stated that Khan had put pressure on police and government officials to not do anything to control the riots, in a possible attempt to appease Muslims.

Khan’s latest remarks have roused condemnation in social media.

As per latest reports, UP Police have registered an FIR against Khan for his sexist and misogynist statements against Jaya Prada. A case has been registered against Khan under section 509 of the IPC. The National Commission of Women has also issued a notice to him for his remarks against Jaya Prada.
