She condemned Khan for hurting the sentiments of Babasaheb’s followers
BSP president Mayawati on Wednesday demanded an apology from senior Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan for his controversial remark on B R Ambedkar. She condemned Khan for hurting the sentiments of Babasaheb’s followers.
“We strongly condemn Azam Khan for his controversial remark on Babasaheb and hope that if he (Khan) cannot give proper respect to the great leader because of the casteist policies of his party, he should not also try to humiliate him by making false statements,” she said.
“It is one thing if Azam Khan’s statement is part of any electoral politics under the casteist policy of the Samajwadi Party, or else he should tender an apology for harming the sentiments of Babasaheb’s followers by issuing such wrong and controversial statement,” Mayawati said in a statement issued in Lucknow.
