Owaisi’s AIMIM Urges Samajwadi Party Leader Azam Khan To Join Party

New Delhi: Asaduddin Owaisi’s party All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) on Sunday has urged senior Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan to join his party.

“You are requested to join the AIMIM so that BJP and the SP could be eliminated from Uttar Pradesh,” said AIMIM state spokesperson Mohammad Farhan in a letter to the Samajwadi Party MLA, as reported by news agency PTI.

Recently, a close aide of Azam Khan accused the Samajwadi Party of ignoring Azam Khan.

Earlier, the media in charge of jailed Azam Khan had accused Akhilesh Yadav of ignoring his colleagues and the Muslim community.

Since then, there is also speculation about a rift in the Samajwadi Party.

In a letter to Azam Khan, the AIMIM spokesperson had written, “When you were fighting for life in Medanta Hospital, the whole nation was concerned about your well-being and praying. On your safe return to the Sitapur jail, Akhilesh Yadav did not consider it necessary to meet you.”

The letter further claimed, “Akhilesh Yadav took votes from Muslims by putting your photo in the 2022 Assembly elections, but when it came to making you the leader of the opposition, he did nothing.”

“Akhilesh Yadav met Azam Khan only once in the jail and the party made no attempt for his release in the past two and a half years,” Khan’s media in-charge Fasahat Khan alias Sanu had told SP workers at a meeting in Rampur few days ago.

“Chief Minister Yogi Aditynath’s comment was right that Akhilesh Yadav doesn’t want Azam Khan to be out (of jail). We made you (Akhilesh Yadav) and Mulayam Singh Yadav UP CM but you didn’t make Azam Khan as leader of Opposition,” he added.
