Actor-turned-politician and BJP leader Jaya Prada on Friday filed a petition in the Allahabad High Court challenging the election of Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Azam Khan, who won the Lok Sabha elections from Uttar Pradesh’s Rampur seat.
In the petition, it has been alleged that at the time of the election, Azam Khan was chancellor of Mohammad Ali Jauhar University, which is a post of profit.
The second allegation in the petition is that during the election process, Azam Khan made religious appeals to garner votes which amounts to bad practice.
The petition was presented in the registry of the court and will be placed before the Chief Justice for nomination of a bench to hear the case.
At the time of filling of the petition, Jaya Prada along with Amar Singh was present before the registry of the court.
