Samajwadi party leader and a controversial politician Azam Khan on Wednesday said that,  the ruling BJP invoked his name whenever elections are near, treating him like an item girl.

As a reaction to the registration Tuesday of the second FIR against him in a week, this time on a complaint by a pro-Ambedkar group for allegedly making defamatory remarks against the Dalit icon two years ago.

Rajya Sabha member Amar Singh on 17 October had filed an FIR against this controversial SP leader for threatening his daughters with acid attack.

He said, "I am the item girl of the BJP, Azam Khan reacted, indirectly suggesting that his name helped the Bharatiya Janata Party attract voters. They contest all the elections on my name. The last assembly election was fought on my name and the same is the case with the coming Lok Sabha elections."

"The present state of affairs is such that I do not remember how many cases have been filed against me and where, he told reporters on the sidelines of an event in Badaun. I keep getting summons and warrants," he said.

In Lucknow, the BJP slammed Azam Khan over the indecent" item girl remark.

Uttar Pradesh BJP spokesperson Chandramohan said,  "Azam Khan has become mentally deranged. The days of politics of vote bank, appeasement and corruption, which he had been indulging in, are over."

"The indecent words which he has used only indicate his thought process. This is the thought process of the Samajwadi Party and people who are associated with SP chief Akhilesh Yadav," he added.

The recent FIR was registered on a complaint by Ambedkar Mahasabha general secretary Amarnath Prajapati at the Hazratganj police station. 

Prajapati blamed that during the inauguration of the Haj House in Ghaziabad in 2016 khan made a controversial statement against B R Ambedkar, called him someone who "grabs land."

The SP leader allegedly said, "All over the state, there are statues of a person whose finger seems to say that it owns not only the plot in which it stands but also the plot towards which it is pointing."

At the Gomti Nagar Police station of Lucknow, Amar Singh lodged an FIR against Khan for allegedly threatening him and his 17-year-old twins during a television interview.

Khan urged to bring the Dalits, the backwards and the deprived together to defeat communal forces at an event organised by a Muslim organisation in Badaun.

He commented on BJP over the Ram temple issue and said that it should ignore the opposition and go ahead with the construction.

Do whatever you want but don't misguide the country," he said.
