Terming Azam Khan's rants as "nothing new", the former leader, who was once close to the party founder Mulayam Singh Yadav, accused Khan of making various anti-remarks in the past and dubbed him as a "symbol of foreign invaders" like "Nadir Shah, (Ahmed Shah) Abdali, Taimurlang, Chenghiz Khan".

"He had also once said that the fund for celebrating SP patron Mulayam Singh Yadav's birthday came from and Abu Salem," alleged Singh.

Singh, who had met Minister was reacting to Khan's remark in a poll campaign rally against his BJP contender for the Rampur Lok seat.

Rampur goes to poll on April 23 in the third phase of elections.

Allegedly targeting the in his rally at Rampur on Sunday, Khan had said he had realised only "in 17 days that she wears a khaki undwerwear."

Singh also targeted his former friend and millennium star Amitabh Bachchan's wife and SP's member and party's Akhilesh Yadav's MP-wife over their silence on Khan's alleged remarks against Jaya Prada, his contender for the Rampur seat.

"In the SP, the one (Jaya Bachchan) who cried over Nirbhaya episode, why is she silent? Is not feeling ashamed?" asked Singh.

"I pray to Goddess Bhagwati that she incarnates herself in and demolish the demon (Azam Khan) of the politics," said Singh.
