Former MP and BJP leader Jaya Prada has debunked the claim of Samajwadi Party founder Mulayam Singh and his son Akhilesh Yadav that Rampur MP Azam Khan constructed the Jauhar University by begging from the common people and seeking donations.
Jaya Prada also criticised Mulayam Singh Yadav and SP president Akhilesh Yadav for supporting Azam Khan.
“Only small rooms can be built by begging and donations. A palatial university like the Jauhar University in Rampur can never be constructed with the money collected through begging,” Jayaprada said in Rampur, adding: “It is naïve on the part of Azam Khan to hold me responsible for the action by the district administration of Rampur against him. He is being brought to justice for his misdeeds and he is reaping what he has sown’’.
On Mulayam Singh’s statement that Azam Khan made a university by begging, Jaya Prada responded: “If a university can be constructed by begging, everybody will make a university’’.
Lashing out at SP national president and former UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, Jaya Prada said that Azam Khan was torturing her during the SP government.
“Akhilesh Yadav as Chief Minister never found it prudent to intervene when Azam Khan was running a vicious campaign against me, because I am a woman and a Hindu,” Jaya Prada said, adding: “Today, Azam Saheb has become the guru of Akhilesh Yadav’’.
Jaya Prada said a person like Akhilesh Yadav who could ditch his father could do anything for his narrow political ends.
