New Delhi: A day after making derogatory remarks about Indian Army, Samajwadi Party leader, Azam Khan stated that he is Bharatiya Janata Party’s item girl and that his statement was misconstrued by the media.
Talking to the media, Khan went on to say: “I am BJP’s item girl. My statement was misconstrued by the media. How can Army’s morale fall due to my comment? I am nobody. Army’s morale fell when PM Narendra Modi went to Pakistan.”
Earlier at a public event in Rampur, Azam Khan managed to make insulting remarks about the Army and stated: “Armed woman attacked soldiers and cut off their private parts. They cut the part they had problems with. India should be ashamed…. How will the country face the world now?”
Criticizing his remarks, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra stated: “Azam Khan never treated India as his country. His allegation that the Indian Army outrages the modesty of our mothers and sisters in Kashmir shows his own narrow mindset. PM Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump condemned terrorism emanating from Pakistan, but hours later politicians like Azam Khan are defending terrorists.”
