Earlier in the day, Yogi said in an interview that Akhilesh Yadav did not want Azam Khan to come out of jail because Azam’s coming out would pose a threat to Akhilesh.
After this statement of Yogi, Tanzim Fatima, wife of Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Azam Khan, targeted Yogi. Fatima told the media, “This is wrong. CM Yogi gives a lot of wrong statements. This is one of those. He (Azam Khan) always faces persecution in the state. Azam Khan won Rampur even while contesting from behind bars and will continue to do so. The people of Rampur are with Azam Khan. Azam Khan will win this time with more votes than before.
It is known that there are more than 70 cases registered against Azam Khan, including charges of extortion and forgery. Azam Khan is lodged in Sitapur Jail since February 2020. During a recent hearing, the Supreme Court had refused to grant any relief to Azam Khan. The Samajwadi Party has fielded Azam Khan and his son Abdullah from Rampur assembly constituencies respectively.
