Meerut (Uttar Pradesh) [India], March 30 (ANI): Actor-turned-politician Jaya Prada, who is contesting the impending polls from Rampur Lok Sabha seat on a BJP ticket, said the sexist comment made by Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Feroz Khan shows the 'sanskar' of the party. 
"A case has already been lodged against him (Feroz). This is the 'sanskar' of Samajwadi Party," she told ANI on Saturday. 
Feroz stirred a controversy by saying people of Rampur will leave no stone unturned to get entertained in the ensuing polls, where SP's Azam Khan will face Jaya Prada.
"Rampur mei shaamein badi rangeen ho jaegi ab to jab chunaavi mahol chalega. Rampurke log mashallah ache hai suljhe hue hai kyunki Azam Khan ne itna kaam karaya hai to vote to Rampur ke log Samajawadi ko hi denge. Lekin apne maje lootne mei vo koi kasar nahi chodenge kyunki unhe ek dafa mauka mila hai to vo yahi kahenge mere pairon mei ghungru bandh do to fir meri chaal or thumke dekh lo (Evenings in Rampur will now become more vibrant during elections. Azam Khan has done enough for the people of Rampur, so they will surely vote for him. But they will leave no stone unturned in getting entertained during this one-off opportunity)," he had said. 
Jaya Prada had made her political debut in 1994 with the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) but later quit due to differences with party chief Chandrababu Naidu. The actress then joined the Samajwadi Party (SP) but was expelled on account of alleged anti-party activities in 2010. She as an SP leader had won the Rampur Lok Sabha seat in 2004 and 2009.
Lok Sabha elections are scheduled to be held from April 11 and will go on till May 19 in seven phases. The polls in Uttar Pradesh will be held in all seven phases and counting of votes will take place on May 23. (ANI)
