Senior Samajwadi Party leader and Uttar Pradesh Minister Azam Khan today asked voters not to hand over the country's reins to a "murderer".
"The country must not to be given to the hands of a murderer...the murderers of Muzaffarnagar should be avenged by pressing the button," Khan said while campaigning for SP's nominee here.
"We don't have to allow a person with a blot to become the 'badshah' (king) of Hindustan," he said in a veiled reference to BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.
Khan said the leader dreaming of becoming the 'badshah' of the country speaks of small things like theft and recovery of his (Khan's) buffaloes in his speeches thereby showing the level of his "political non-seriousness".
He said that in reality, Modi is a small-hearted person.
