"Shame!" Yogi Adityanath said, condemning Azam Khan's remark and the two former chief ministers' silence over the jibe, in which Khan Sunday told a poll rally in Rampur that "he knew in 17 days that she wears a khaki underwear".

"The mean and indecent remark against Jaya Prada reflects the mean mindset and personality of Azam Khan," the Uttar Pradesh chief minister said in tweet.

On Sunday, Azam Khan took political rhetoric to a new low when he said, "People of Rampur, people of Uttar Pradesh and people of India, it took you 17 years to understand her reality. But I could recognize it in 17 days that she wears a khaki underwear."

Azam Khan was speaking at a rally in Uttar Pradesh's Rampur from where Jaya Prada is contesting against him for the Lok Sabha elections.

While the National Commission for Women (NCW) has taken note of the remarks and asked the Election Commission (EC) to take strong action against the Samajwadi Party leader.
