Known for making controversial remarks, senior Uttar Pradesh minister Mohd Azam Khan Saturday plumbed new depths when he alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had met underworld don Dawood Ibrahim in Lahore at the residence of Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif.

While BJP attacked him, even a Congress spokesperson said it cannot be believed.

“Prime Minister visited Pakistan by breaking international laws. He also met Dawood there. Let him (Modi) deny. I will give evidence. Who all did he meet behind closed doors?” Khan said.

He said besides Sharif, his mother, his wife and daughters, Dawood Ibrahim was also present when Modi met them at the Pakistan Prime Minister’s residence when he went there on December 25.

BJP’s Sudhanshu Mittal asked Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav to “immediately” dismiss the minister.

“If Akhilesh means business, he should immediately dismiss him for disturbing communal harmony and brining shame to the nation. I am shocked,” he said.

Congress spokesperson Tom Vadakkan said Khan has been in public life for a long time and he should not have made the statement without substantiating it.

“We may have differences with a lot of personalities but that does not mean we believe in whatever is said,” he said adding that Khan is the same person who asked UP policemen to trace his buffalo.

        These people have gained art of keeping themselves in highlights. Anything sensational is breaking news today and they are masters at getting media attention. Ignorance is the best medicine for such headaches.

          Maybe Mr.Ibrahim has himself provided the evidence . Mr.Azam should present this evidence. Else, in future no official trip of Mr.Azam should be approved by any Central Govt. ....

              Only way to force the rascals to close do n out shop/business of politics is to set the standard high enough so they can't match the delivery and give up on their own. Yes, people's expectation also should be set high - the mentality of "ma bap" should also be vanished through Govt.'s own empowering policy. Once this is done a real politician won't have to fight the rascals and waste the value able time!

                Why is Indian Express giving the Headline space to such trash without verifying? Indian Express is losing its own goodwill with readers by becoming a rumor mongering rag.
