UP Guv wants minister Azam Khan sacked for his remarks
Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik on Sunday said he has sought the sacking of cabinet minister Azam Khan for making comments against him in the state Assembly last month in which the latter had accused him of communally vitiating the atmosphere of the state at the behest of the Modi government.
“I have discussed with CM Akhilesh removal of Khan several times for his conduct and behaviour. When he returns from England we will talk again,” Naik told reporters here.
“The terminology used by Khan in the Assembly is condemnable. I’ve written to the CM for his removal from his ministry and informed Parliament. Doing this is my Constitutional right and duty also,” he said.
Earlier, the Governor had gone through the CD and script of Khan’s remarks on the floor of the House on March 8 and written to Speaker Mata Prasad Pandey. He had taken strong exception to Khan’s comments and questioned his competence as Parliamentary Affairs Minister.
