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.
