Barely a day after the UP minister Rajaram Pandey was sacked over ‘sexist’ remarks, there pops up demand for sacking of another minister over “misbehaviour and highhandedness” with a woman MP.


Lok Manch president Amar Singh on Sunday dared UP chief minister Akhilesh Yadav to sack the cabinet minister Azam Khan the way he sacked Khadi minister Rajaram Pandey overt sexist remarks or the way food minister Raghuraj Pratap Singh was made to quit on suspicion of involvement in a criminal case.

Amar Singh held a press conference following Saturday's incident in Rampur wherein red beacon light on Rampur MP Jaya Prada was "forcibly removed while the car was parked inside her house".

Singh said that a senior transport department officer Kaushalendra Yadav orchestrated the incident which was no less than tresspass and misbehaviour with a woman.

Amar Singh held Azam Khan behind the incident and said that minutes before the incident Azam Khan had passed by the House.

He said if an action was not taken against the officer and Azam Khan then "we would file FIRs against them through the High Court".

Rajaram Pandey, was sacked after he made remarks in his Pratapgarh constituency that roads would be turned as smooth as Hema Malini and Madhuri Dixit cheeks.
