In remarks laced with sarcasm,SP leader Azam Khan said Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi is an “innocent child” who reads from the dais whatever is given to him in writing.

“Rahul is an innocent child…though Ramdev too calls him so,but I will call him innocent as he reads whatever is given to him in writing,” the UP Cabinet Minister said.

He claimed Rahul called saw mills as plywood factories while addressing a rally in the state.

On Rahul’s allegation the SP government is triggering riots,Khan hit back saying “it was Congress,which laid the foundation of communal clashes”.

“Congress ruled the country for more than 50 years after Independence and it triggered numerous riots,” Khan alleged.

The minister,who was here to meet the family of five persons of a minority community who were murdered,said he is satisfied with the working of Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.

He said the day he would feel that Akhilesh was not living up to the expectations,he would be the first person to withdraw from the government.

When asked about his recent meeting with controversial Independent MLA Raghuraj Pratap Singh alias Raja Bhaiyya,who was Friday re-inducted into the UP Cabinet,Khan said he met the MLA as he honours relationships.

On the objections raised by the DSP’s wife on re-inductionof Raja Bhaiyya,Azam said that after the killing she had submitted a 21-point charter of demands and all were accepted.
