Rampur (Uttar Pradesh) [India], Apr 22 (ANI): Rampur district authorities have said a case will be registered against Samajwadi Party leader, MLA Abdullah Azam Khan for calling Jaya Prada ‘Anarkali’.  
Anjaynay Kumar, District Magistrate (DM), Rampur, confirmed on Monday, that an offence report will be filed against Abdullah Azam Khan
"I have given evidence of video recording to police authorities.  Sections will be applied accordingly (on Abdullah)," said DM Anjaynay Kumar.
The son of senior SP leader Azam Khan, Abdullah had said: "Humein Ali Bhi Chahiye, Bajrang Bali Bhi Chahiye Lekin Anarkali Nahi Chahiye." (We want both 'Ali' and 'Bajrangbali' but not 'Anarkali') 
Talking to ANI, the actor-turned-politician Jaya Prada said that she did not expect this from Abdullah and that it was an offensive statement.
"Abdullah has been groomed in the atmosphere of his father Azam Khan, it was obvious for him to speak the same language. But I am very disappointed with Abdullah's statement who has grown up in front of me. It is very unfortunate that he sees Anarkali in me. It is very offensive and I condemn his statement," Jaya said talking to reporters.  (ANI)
