"The second issue is if he is very keen to comment, there are many issues on which he can comment. For example, the UP Police had more time to look for his buffalo than to catch criminals and what about Mulayam Singh ji's famous comment on the Mumbai rape case "Oh boys are boys after all they can do something like that" such major issues emanating for Uttar Pradesh" he added.

Bringing forth is prime ministerial ambitions, Khan yesterday likened himself to incumbent Narendra Modi.
