Senior Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan who is currently in the line of fire for making lewd and misogynistic comments against BJP leader Jaya Prada, has courted yet another controversy over his speeches.
As per a video footage posted by journalist Raj Shekhar Jha, Azam Khan is seen appealing to his followers to not be scared of district collectors.
While speaking in a contemptuous tone, Khan said that one should never be afraid of the salaried class and recounted how his now ally Mayawati used to get top bureaucrats to clean her shoes.

.. And we wondered why UP was so lawless all these years. Good that these people are on leash now. All they can do is talk now. pic.twitter.com/3Y3gdmsWSk
Khan then added that if Allah wills he would also get the bureaucrats to clean shoes.
This video comes just a day after Khan was caught on camera making a disgustingly lewd comment against his BJP rival Jaya Prada in Uttar Pradesh's Rampur constituency.
Azam Khan, who is a close associate of SP chief Akhilesh Yadav and is widely regarded as the Muslim face of SP, said Jayapradha wears “Khaki underpants”.
