Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan has threatened to blow up a guest house in Jauhar University if anyone tried to lay a hand on it, prompting an Uttar Pradesh minister to say a probe will be held to find out what arms he possesses.

The tussle between Khan and UP minister of state Baldev Singh Aoulakh started when the latter expressed his resolve to hold a Janta Darbar in a guest house located on the premises of the varsity which is owned by the SP leader.

Allegations of irregularities had been raised about the construction of the university a few months earlier. Demands had also been made to launch a probe into its functioning, income and expenditure.

Aoulakh had reportedly said as the university was constructed using government funds no one had the right to stop him from holding a Janata Darbar in its guest house.

Khan at a meeting of party workers had on Tuesday said, “The guest house in the Jauhar University would be blown up using dynamite if anybody attempted to lay a hand on any part of the institution.”

Reacting to Khan’s remarks, Aoulakh said this matter would be brought to the notice of chief minister Yogi Adityanath and and a probe would be launched to find out what

arms and ammunition the former minister possessed.

Khan’s PRO Fasat Ali Khan Shanu said, “Government funds were allotted for the construction and management of the guest house and if anyone attempts to enter into the premises, it shall be deemed as transpassing,” he said.
