Amidst the Lok Sabha elections, while addressing a public rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Rampur on Friday, Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Azam Khan said, “I am being treated as if I am an anti-national or a traitor. They are treating me as if I am the biggest terrorist in this world. Had it been within the limits of their power, the administration would have openly killed me by firing a shot at me.” On April 15, Azam Khan had made derogatory remarks against actor-turned-politician Jaya Prada, his BJP opponent in Rampur. Later, he was banned by the Election Commission (EC) from campaigning for the next three days, starting April 16. He was also served a notice by the National Commission for Women (NCW).
