Azam Khan apologises for his sexist ‘poetry’ on BJP MP Rama Devi in Lok Sabha, Rama Devi calls him ‘serial offender’

When Akhilesh Yadav, who sat right beside Azam Khan in the Lok Sabha today, stood up to defend Azam Khan, Rama Devi strongly objected to the SP president's intervention.

The Samajwadi Party MP Azam Khan who had once again stoked controversy by repeating his aberration and making, cheap and sexist remarks against BJP MP Rama Devi, has now been forced to render his apologies for the same.

“I have been an MLA for nine times, a minister several times a Rajya Sabha member too. I was a parliamentary affairs minister too. I know legislative procedures. However, if my words hurt anyone, I hereby apologise,” Azam Khan said in Lok Sabha on Monday.

However, the BJP MP fulminated in the Parliament today, shrugged off his apologies and called him a ‘serial offender’. “Azam Khan ji’s remark has hurt both women and men in India. He will not understand this. Azam Khan is a serial offender. I have not come here to hear such comments, said Rama Devi.

Moreover, when Akhilesh Yadav, who sat right beside Azam Khan in the Lok Sabha today, stood up to defend Azam Khan, Rama Devi strongly objected to the SP president’s intervention.

Shockingly, the party President, Akhilesh Yadav had earlier too, come out to defend Azam Khan’s despicable and creepy remark, which under normal circumstances could amount to harassment and sexual abuse, by calling it ‘poetry’.

Azam Khan, stooping to a new low, had wished to stare into Rama Devi’s eyes for an eternity during the Parliament session convened on June 25. BJP MP was conducting the proceedings of the Lower House as the acting Chair then.

He had further said that he likes her so much that he wants to keep staring into her eyes and that he will keep staring at her until she feels compelled to tell him to stop staring at her.

Rama Devi was visibly upset with Khan’s remarks and ordered them to be expunged from the records. She told him that it wasn’t an appropriate way to talk to her. Other members of the Parliament, too, were outraged by Khan’s conduct and demanded that he apologize.

Later on she said Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan must be suspended from the Lok Sabha for five years as a mere apology for his objectionable remarks is not enough.

While many women MP’s across party lines got together to condemn Azam Khan’s sexist remark, NCP’s  Majeed Memon endorsed Khan’s sexist ‘poetry’ on BJP MP Rama Devi.

A day after, Azam Khan came up with his new deplorable comment NCP’s Memon had stood behind the Samajwadi Party (SP) leader stating that the comment made by Azam Khan was not disrespectful and should be seen as something said in appreciation.

Azam Khan, the habitual offender had earlier too been called out for his misogynist attack on BJP leader and veteran actor, Jaya Prada.
