EC probes Azam Khan’s ‘hate speech’

LUCKNOW (TIP): It looks like UP cabinet minister Azam Khan’s problems are not over yet. On Thursday, Election Commission (EC) officials said the commission was probing numerous parts of a speech the Samajwadi party (SP) leader had delivered on April 8. The reference to only Muslim soldiers having fought in Kargil, calling Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) leader Amit Shah a “gunda No. 1” and a rapist, and comments on the late Sanjay Gandhi are the segments being scrutinized.

EC official R P Singh said a team was examining the video in which Khan allegedly delivered a 30- minute ‘hate speech’ against BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi – who he referred to as the elder brother of a puppy – and the party’s UP chief Amit Shah. Congress was purportedly maligned as well.
