UP Wednesday sought an apology from Yadav for Azam Khan's underwear jibe allegedly targeting and BJP's Rampur candidate Jaya Prada, saying the country cannot tolerate his utterances.

"Neither the BJP nor the country can tolerate derogatory remarks by The should take stern action against and also tender an apology to the country for Khan's comments amounting to humiliation of mothers and sisters," said Maurya, addressing an election meeting for BJP's Aonla nominee, Dharmendra Kashyap.

The deputy CM also expressed surprise over the Mayawati's silence over Azam Khan's remarks saying it is surprising that despite being a woman she has not uttered a word on the issue.

While addressing an election rally in Rampur, where he is pitted against Jaya Prada, Khan, without naming her, had said he had come to know in 17 days that "she wears a khaki underwear".

Attacking Yadav, Maurya said, "What kind of a son he is that he snatched the of his father? Now he has also snatched his ticket from the Azamgarh seat."

"When he could not be loyal to his father and uncle, how would he be loyal to his fake bua (Mayawati)?" he asked.

He also accused the of siding with enemies of the country, saying, "ka haath, desh ke dushmano ke saath. If these people form the government they will get an Afzal Guru's statue installed."

Maurya claimed the Congress, SP and BSP all will be wiped out in elections.
