New Delhi : Election 2019 Live: Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav today defended Azam Khan’s derogatory remark on BJP leader Jaya Prada. “He was talking about someone else. We are Samajwadis, we never use foul language for women,” he said. Later, when reporters asked Khan about NCW notice served to him in connection with the controversial comment, the infuriated leader said, “Aapke walid ke maut me aaya hun (I have come at your father’s death).” He was in MP’s Vidisha for last rites of former Rajya Sabha MP Munawwar Salim, who had passed away earlier today.
The Supreme Court on Monday ordered Congress chief Rahul Gandhi to explain why he attributed his ‘Chowkidar Chor Hai’ jibe against Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the top court. “We only looked at the admissibility of the documents. We didn’t say what has been attributed to us by Gandhi. The alleged statement has been wrongly attributed to the court,” the Supreme Court said, issuing a notice to the Congress chief.
