Uttar Pradesh minister Azam Khan backtracked from his Uttar Pradesh remark, saying he was misinterpreted. He was embroiled in another controversy after his remarks over Bulandshahr gangrape case. "Didn't say virodhiyon ki shaazish, said that UP polls are close and so many such incidents are happening, needs to be investigated," said Azam Khan.
Earlier, Azam Khan took a jibe at various BJP ministers visiting Bulandshahr to meet victim. "We need to investigate whether this is a conspiracy by opponents who want to defame the government," said Mr Khan, who is known to invite trouble with his loose talk.
"For votes, people can stoop to any level. There can be a Muzaffarnagar, a Shamli and Kairana...why not this? For power, politicians can murder people, trigger riots, kill innocent people, so the truth has to be found out," he remarked.
While, BJP retorted strongly to it and said, "If you have an ounce of humanity, then try and catch the accused." The party has demanded CBI enquiry in the matter. Ever since the matter came into light, there have been demands for Akhilesh Yadav's resignation from several political leaders.
