NCW sends a legal notice and will request EC to bar Azam khan from contesting election

Azam Khan recently made a very disgraceful comment on her rival from Rampur constituency. He said “Jisko hum ungli pakadkar Rampur laaye, aapne 10 saal jinse apna pratinidhitva karaya…Uski asliyat samajhne mein aapko 17 baras lage, main 17 din mein pehchan gaya ki inke niche ka underwear khaki rang ka hai (Someone that I mentored personally and introduced to Rampur, someone who led you as a leader or 10 years, you took 17 years to identify them but I recognised in just 17 days that even the underwear worn by them is coloured khakhi)”. 

NCW (National Commision for Women) chief Rekha Sharma took this issue as matter of great concern for women respect and twetted “Absolutely disgraceful. #AazamKhan is always abusive and disrespectful towards women. @ncw will take Suo Moto and will send a notice to him. Will request #ElectionCommission to bar him from contesting elections.”

NCW today, issued a legal notice and asked for a satisfactory explanation over his remark of ‘Khaki underwear’ on Jayaprada.

This is not the first time that Azam has used bad verbal annotations to his rival Jayaprada. Some days ago during his rally in Rampur he compared Jayaprada as merely a ‘Nachne Wali'(street Dancer).

Jayaprada reacted to Azam’s statement and said “He shouldn’t be allowed to contest elections. Because if this man wins, what will happen to democracy? There’ll be no place for women in society. Where will we go? Should I die, then you’ll be satisfied? You think that I’ll get scared & leave Rampur? But I won’t leave.”

Its a three-way contest in Rampur between Jaya Prada from BJP,  Sanjay Kapur from Congress and  Azam Khan from SP. The polling in Rampur will be done in phase three of Lok Sabha elections on April 23.
