Azam Khan compares himself with PM Modi, desires to lead India
Saharanpur : Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan may have criticized Prime Minister Narendra Modi several times but he believes that many of his qualities like "making tea", "dressing properly" and "playing drums" make him a suitable candidate for the PM post.
"I have all the qualities of becoming Prime Minister. I can make tea, play the drum, cook food and I wear proper clothes. Besides, I am not all that bad looking or am I corrupt," he said at an e-rickshaw distribution function in Saharanpur.
He also highlighted Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Rs 15 lakh per account poll promise which is yet to be fulfilled.
"If I become Prime Minister, I assure you, I will deposit Rs 20 lakh in accounts of 130 crore people within six months.
I am not like those who don't keep their promises," he said in an apparent dig at Modi.
Problems faced by rickshaw pullers
Azam Khan was there to distribute E-rickshaws and respecting the occasion he also featured problems faced by rickshaw pullers.
"A rikshaw puller always faces difficulty in getting his daughter married because the probable groom's family rejects the proposal because of his social status and work," he claimed.
The UP government is replacing cycle-rickshaws with e-rickshaws to give them the opportunity to earn better and regain their self-respect, he said.
