The Day After - - STATES DIARY -

The Bahu­jan Sa­ma­jwadi Party (BSP) leader Kazim Ali Khan has ac­cused Sa­ma­jwadi Party (SP) leader Azam Khan of steal­ing two large stat­ues of li­ons from the Ram­pur Club. Kazim — whose grand­fa­ther had con­structed the club in his princely es­tate, al­leged that Azam got the stat­ues in­stalled at his Jauhar Univer­sity. Kazim, the tit­u­lar nawab of Ram­pur who has been a mem­ber of the UP leg­isla­tive as­sem­bly for four con­sec­u­tive terms, said he had filed a com­plaint with the po­lice in this re­gard.

SP Ram­pur Vipin Tada said a probe has been launched into the mat­ter un­der a se­nior po­lice of­fi­cer. When asked Azam tried to duck a query on the is­sue, say­ing “he had re­moved dogs and not li­ons”. Mean­while, the Vishwa Hindu Par­ishad (VHP) took out a protest march, de­mand­ing ac­tion against Azam for al­legedly re­mov­ing stat­ues from the Ram­pur Club.
