Amidst the rift between Samajwadi Party leaders Amar Singh and Azam Khan over the candidature of actress Jayapradha from Rampur Lok Sabha seat in Uttar Pradesh, she on Saturday spoke against her detractors and described the alleged abuses by Khan as `disturbing'.
"He used some wrong words and abuses. He may not be directly telling them but some of his stooge's wave black flags and protest in my presence. It was very disturbing", she told reporters here after an election rally.
Asked to name the people abusing her, she said, "Azam Khan has said some things (about me) to his party workers.I cannot repeat the words he used for me. As a lady i cannot utter them.
Questioned if she felt humiliated, Jayapradha said, "I always respect elders. Whatever their abuse is, i never retaliate. I never say bad things about anybody," she said in her defense.
Even though Azam khan has openly spoen about his differences with Singh over inclusion of Kalyan Singh into the partyfold, many view Jayapradha's candidature from Rampur, whch is Khan's bastion, also as one of the reasons.
"I am not the main cause, I am one of the cause. But, i don't know the truth and what is the reason (between their differences). I think my elder brother Azam Khan Saheb can explain it in a better way," Jayapradha said when asked about this ongoing tussle in the SP.
Mahavir Bhagwan preached, "Live and let others live. I say, Let me live in peace", said the aspirant candidate.
