Bulandshahr Gangrape: Azam Khan Alleges Political Conspiracy[/caption]
Taking a U-Turn, Controversial Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan on Tuesday said that his words had been misconstrued.
"I am a very sensitive person. State Govt is totally with the victims of Bulandshahr incident, I am personally with them more than everyone else got together," he said in a statement today.
"Didnt say "virodhiyon ki shaazish", said that UP polls are close & so many such incidents are happening, needs to be investigated," he added.
Controversial Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan is once again hitting the headlines for all wrong reason.
Earlier today, Khan defined the brutal gangrape of a mother-daughter duo in Bulandshahr as a 'political conspiracy' by opposition against Samajwadi.

“We must also probe whether this entire controversy is a move by some Opposition elements to defame the government. People who want to come to power may be stooping this low for political interests,” he said.

Khan's statement comes at the time when the Samajwadi Party government is already facing flak from opposition parties over the deteriorating law and order situation in the state.
On Monday, opposition parties demanded the resignation of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav over the incident and asked him to own up moral responsibility of the heinous crime.
