Prime News, National, Rampur (Uttar Pradesh), April 15:- Senior Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Azam Khan has been booked for his derogatory remarks against Jaya Prada, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and his rival in Uttar Pradesh’s Rampur Parliamentary Constituency.
Khan has also been asked by the National Commission for Women (NCW) to explain his comments on Sunday, which were caught on camera, against the actor-turned-politician as the BJP and Congress sought action against him.
The veteran SP leader had stoked a controversy with an “underpant” jibe against Jaya Prada, who is fighting the Lok Sabha election 2019 from Rampur Parliamentary Constituency against him.
“I brought her (Jaya Prada) to Rampur. You are a witness that I did not allow anyone to touch her body. It took you 17 years to identify her real face but I got to know in 17 days that she wears khaki underpant,” Khan had said while addressing a campaign rally in Rampur on Sunday.
Known for his controversial comments in the past, the SP leader was referring to the colour associated with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), the BJP’s ideological mentor. (Inputs: Agencies, NGB)
