Gorakhpur: Uttar Pradesh Minister Azam Khan courted a fresh controversy as he advised BJP MP Yogi Adityanath to get married and “prove his masculinity” with the latter seeking his expulsion.
“Yogi Adityanath should first get married and prove his masculinity,” Khan told reporters on the sidelines of an event here last night.
Replying to question on whether he considered all sages in the country did not possess masculinity, Khan said, “they are frustrated.”
Following the SP leader’s remarks, Adityanath advised Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav to sack Azam Khan.
He said Khan has lost his mental balance and needed medical attention.
The remarks made by Azam Khan invited a lot of criticism from the various Hindu outfits who held a dharna against the SP leader and burnt his effigy.
Khan also attacked another BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj and said there are many serious cases against him which are condemnable.
