SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav on Saturday said the ban on campaigning imposed by Election Commission on UP minister Azam Khan was “inappropriate” and it has led to resentment among the people.
He said the Commission should review the ban on Khan from holding public rally. “The election commission should review its decision of imposing ban on Azam Khan… there is resentment among the people because of ban on him,” Yadav said at a rally in Bareilly this afternoon.
“Khan is an honest and dedicated leader of the country… Election Commission would not get any credit for imposing ban on him instead there is resentment in public over it,” he said. Earlier in Lakhimpur Kheri, he said that he would appeal to the Election Commission to lift the ban.
