SP’s Azam Khan defends foreign study tours

‘There is a canard against Samajwadi Party. Those media groups who are sympethisers of  Narendra Modi  have projected that this tour was undertaken at a time when Muslims were facing problems in Muzaffarnagar,’ Azam Khan told reporters in Lucknow.

How Modi came in the picture is difficult to understand. Probably Azam Khan, who is also in-charge of Muzaffarnagar that witnessed one of the deadliest communal tension of this time finds it politically convenient to drag Narendra Modi’s name in the whole controversy. ‘We are elected members of the state legislature and people saying that this trip was a junket was a disgrace.

This trip was passed by the Central Government on the invitation of Commonwealth Society. We had healthy discussions with the leaders of these countries and want to replicate our experience in state projects,’ Azam Khan, who is urban development minister in UP cabinet said.
