I can make tea, play drums, I can become Prime Minister: Azam Khan

"If I become Prime Minister, I assure you, I will deposit Rs 20 lakh in accounts of 130 crore people within six months," Azam Khan said.

He may be a strident critic of Narendra Modi but Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan says he shares many of his qualities like “making tea”, “dressing properly” and “playing drums” and is a “fit candidate” for prime minister.

“I have all the qualities of becoming Prime Minister. I can make tea, play the drum, cook food and I wear proper clothes. Besides, I am not all that bad looking or am I corrupt,” he said at an e-rickshaw distribution function here.

Khan took jibes at Modi for his “chaiwala” beginnings, his “monogrammed suit” and his drum playing episodes in Japan and Tanzania. “If I become Prime Minister, I assure you, I will deposit Rs 20 lakh in accounts of 130 crore people within six months. I am not like those who don’t keep their promises,” he said in an apparent dig at Modi over his poll promise of depositing Rs 15 lakh each in the account of every Indian.

“Nobody would have been poor if the money was deposited. People would not have to come here to take e-rickshaws to earn a livelihood but would have been ‘crore-patis’ (millionaires),” he said.

“A rikshaw puller always faces difficulty in getting his daughter married because the probable groom’s family rejects the proposal because of his social status and work,” he claimed.

The UP government is replacing cycle-rickshaws with e-rickshaws to give them the opportunity to earn better and regain their self-respect, he said. Taking further potshots at Modi, Khan said, “At a time when tension rages at the border and our poor are going hungry, he (Modi) sends ‘shawls’ to Pakistan and gets in return boxes of mangoes.

The king is happy so is Pakistan. He will take advantage of this in the 2017 polls (in UP).” Attacking the media, he said it was better to watch entertainment channels than news channels.

                        Mr. Azam Khan, you are very right. Any one can become a PM or a CM or an MP or an MLA or a Councilor. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;For you to become a PM, as long as you are part of SP this will never happen as Mr. Mulayam will never allow other than his family member to be either CM or PM.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;So you better quit SP and start your own party and if your party wins a majority in the next Lok Sabha election only then you can become PM.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Nothing wrong in dreaming!!! But please also do some good to the people... at least be of some help to the thousands of poor Muslims in your consuency who you traded in the name of Islam to become an MP, else Allah will never forgive you.

                                  People already getting the benefit more than 15 Lakh if you care to look around! This will keep multiplying over the coming years. This is without taking into account the stolen money which is yet to be recovered.lt;br/gt;Have you got your buffalos back?
