Election Commission acting on Congress’s behest, alleges Azam Khan

Rampur, Apr.13: Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Azam Khan on Sunday alleged that the Election Commission is acting on the directives of the Congress Party, and vowed to approach court if justice is not delivered to him.

Khan, who was barred by the EC from addressing rallies in Uttar Pradesh alleged, “The Election Commission wants to gag me under the direction of Congress party. They were pre-determined; where is justice. If I don’t get justice I will knock the door of the court.”

“They have not even read what I have said in reply to their notice. If this is their conduct, then the whole country would feel disappointed,” he said.

“The people of this country should know what is happening with us. They should know that the election commission has fulfilled the wish of the Congress Party. A person who could ask justice for the minorities has been silenced by the EC,” he added.

He said the country should be united against such people who are doing injustice to them.

The Election Commission (EC) of India has banned Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Azam Khan from addressing any public rallies after they made “highly inflammatory speeches” during election campaigns.

Azam Khan stirred a controversy earlier this week when he said that Muslim soldiers solely won Kargil war.

His remark was seen as an attempt to polarise the voters a day before Uttar Pradesh was getting ready for elections. (ANI)
