Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan has challenged BJP's Uttar Pradesh candidate Amit Shah, saying that he is not capable of taking revenge on them for the Muzaffarnagar riots. He intensified his jibe, saying,"Amit Shah said he wants to take revenge on us. A man who couldn't save the hair on his own head, how can he protect us?"
However, spokesperson of BJP Sambit Patra countered Khan saying,"People like Mulayam Singh and Azam Khan should not be taken seriously. Neither is young India or BJP is going to respond to such nonsensical comments."
Shah, while addressing a rally at Bijnore, told Jat voters that the 2014 election was an opposrtunity to take revenge for the communal riots. He said,"If you want to take revenge you should vote for the BJP. You can no longer resolve a matter with swords and arrows. Today you can take revenge by voting for the BJP."
Shah had also said,"Justice is not being done to the people and it's time to take revenge. It was during the Mughal rule that swords and arrows were used to take revenge. But now you have to vote to take revenge. Press the right button to show them their right place."
This is not the first instance when Khan hit out at Shah. Earlier, he had said,"Amit Shah is a gunda. It is unfortunate to have to refer to someone as a gunda but what else can you call someone who is a killer?"
