Exclusive: Azam Khan is disliked by all, says Maulana Bukhari
Lucknow: All is not well for senior Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan, seems. A couple of days after the party president Mulayam Singh Yadav nominated Azam's bete noire Amar Singh to Rajya Sabha, he met his another adversary Maulana Syed Ahmed Bukhari.
The party president as well as the Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav met Bukhari, who had some unsavoury comments to make against Azam Khan, at the CM house in the state capital on Thursday last.
In an exclusive conversation with newztrack.com, Bukhari cried shame upon Azam Khan, dubbing him a kind of man who is ‘disliked by all’.
Bukhari accused Khan of unemployment in Rampur:
“The minister failed to control unemployment in his own district and those stood against him were ultimately dragged behind the bars,” said the cleric.
Remarks of the cleric on Khan’s wife:
“The party should recall its standard before giving ticket to anyone. Khan’s wife has no political qualities to be nominated for the Rajya Sabha seat,” said Bukhari when asked whether Khan’s wife should be made a Rajya Sabha member.
What else Bukhari said:
- At least one Muslim candidate should be nominated for the Rajya Sabha seat.
- Political parties have always exploited the Muslim community for strengthening their vote bank and none could ever solve the communities’ issues.
- The ‘Sachar Committee’ was meant by the Congress for destruction of Muslims, more than their betterment.
- Both, Congress and the BJP, give rise to communal differences within the country, dividing communities and spreading hatred.
