Actor-turned-politician and BJP’s Rampur candidate Jaya Prada, who was at the centre of a row over Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan’s sexist remarks, has landed in trouble for her ‘advice’ to BSP chief Mayawati.
A case has been registered against Jaya Prada after she told a gathering in Rampur that the way Khan was commenting on her, the “BSP chief can imagine what all he will be looking at with his X-Ray vision if she comes along with him”.
The Election Commission had earlier cracked down on Khan and barred him from campaigning for 72 hours after his derogatory comments against the actor. Khan had told a gathering, “… you got represented (by her) for 10 years. People of Rampur, people of Uttar Pradesh and people of India, it took you 17 years to understand her reality. But, I could recognise it in 17 days that she wears a khaki underwear.”
