Abdullah further said that the BJP leaders had officers, police and two governments with them but he had no one. “You (BJP leaders) have officers with you, police with you, two governments with you. I’m alone, I have no one with me,” added the SP leader.
It may be noted that Abdullah and his father were lodged in the Sitapur jail after they were shifted from Rampur jail in February last year. Abdullah has as many as 43 cases registered against him in Rampur. He ran as a Samajwadi Party candidate from Suar in the 2017 Assembly election and won. In December 2019, the Allahabad High Court overturned his win, citing the fact that he was under the age of 25 when he submitted his candidature with forged documents.
