In the run up to the Lok Sabha polls, the campaigning trail has begun and the political rhetoric is again stooping to a low as the Samajwadi Party leader Firoz Khan has made controversial remarks over the BJP leader Jaya Prada, who is all set to contest polls from Rampur.
Firoz Khan, while commenting upon Jaya Prada joining the BJP and contesting against senior SP leader Azam Khan, said, “Rampur ki shaamein rangeen ho jaayengi ab jab chunavi mahual chalega.”
On Tuesday, former SP leader and actor-turned politician Jaya Prada joined the BJP in Delhi and was later on declared as the BJP’s candidate from the Rampur constituency, which is being contested by Samajwadi Party’s Azam Khan, who will be making his debut in the Lok Sabha.
