National Comm-ission for Women Chairperson Rekha Sharma termed Khan’s alleged below-the-belt remarks against the actor as “extremely disgraceful” and said the women panel will be sending a show cause notice to him.

Reacting to Khan’s remarks, she tweeted that the NCW would also be requesting the Election Commission to bar him from contesting elections. Sharma reacted after taking cognisance of another tweet by an user, who had also uploaded a video of the SP leader’s purported jibe. The video of Khan making the “abusive” remarks was also doing rounds on various social media platforms.

The tweet, which the NCW chairperson took note of quoted Khan as saying “Jaya Prada ke neeche ka underwear Khaki rang ka hai”. Khan allegedly made the remarks while addressing a poll campaign rally at Rampur, which goes to polls on April 23 along with a total of 115 constituencies across 15 States in the third phase of the elections.

“Azam Khan is always abusive and disrespectful towards women. The NCW will take suo motu cognisance and will send a notice to him.  Will request EC to bar him from contesting elections,” tweeted the NCW chairperson.
