Former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Mayawati, the national president of the Bahujan Samaj Party, has given a big statement in favor of Azam Khan. The BSP chief has said in a tweet on Thursday that the Bharatiya Janata Party is also following the path of Congress and targeting people in its ruling states. Like Congress, the BJP is harassing people in Uttar Pradesh and other states ruled by it. He said that the way the poor, Dalits, Adivasis and Muslims are being harassed by targeting them by making them victims of atrocities, excesses, and fear, is very sad, while their kindness continues in the affairs of others.

According to the sources a senior BSP leader was already in touch with Azam Kahn and his family. Since Azam is a big Muslim leader of UP and BSP has suffered a vote erosion in the recently concluded UP assembly election. Muslims have voted one-sidedly in favour of the Samajwadi Party in the recent up-state elections. If he joins the BSP then it will provide a big boost to the party.

Mayawati said that in this sequence, the Uttar Pradesh government is continuously taking malicious and terroristic action against its opponents. He said that senior Uttar Pradesh MLA Mohammad Azam Khan has been kept in jail by the BJP government for about two and a half years. This action against Azam Khan is in news. Mayawati said that if this is not strangulation of justice in the eyes of the people then what is.

Mayawati said that along with this, the way migrants and working people are being made victims of fear and terror in the name of encroachment, their livelihood is being snatched in many states in the name of recovery in the country.
