Amit Shah sparks row with Azamgarh terror hub remark
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Narendra Modi close aide Amit Shah has sparked a fresh row after he called Azamgarh in Uttar Pradesh a hub of terrorism to attacking the ruling Samajwadi Party.
"What kind of a government are they running that they made Azamgarh a hub of terrorism?" asked Shah on Sunday at a rally while canvassing for BJP candidate from the seat, Ramakant Yadav.
"There was a blast in Gujarat and we found following the leads that all of the perpetrators had come from Azambarg to trigger the explosion," said Shah.
He said the ruling government is trying to get released from jail those accused of terrorism, having turned a place of brave people into a base of terrorism.
Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav is contesting the polls from Azamgarh.
Soon after the remark, the SP reacted sharply and complained to the Election Commission (EC) to take note of the remarks and act against Shah.
