New Delhi: Following the Supreme Court’s directive, Uttar Pradesh cabinet minister Azam Khan on Thursday submitted an affidavit with the Supreme Court over his comments on the dastardly Bulandshahar gangrape that took place on National Highway-91.
In his affidavit submitted to the apex court, Khan said, “The media presented my comment in a wrong way. Most of the complaints against Uttar Pradesh ruling Samajwadi party are mere conspiracies by the opposition.”
Pointing his cannons towards the centre, Azam Khan further alleged that Gujarat, Muzaffarnagar, Shamli, riots in Kerana and even the assassination of Gandhi was a conspiracy by the opposition government and that is why it is being brought out as a political issue.
Khan further added, “The statement which I made was not intended to hurt any emotional sentiments.”
Including the affidavit, Azam Khan also submitted the copy of the CD of the press conference to the Supreme Court.
Azam Khan was caught in the loop after he named the Bulandshaher gangrape as a political move, in respect to which the victim’s family filled a petition against the Samajwadi Party leader.
