Fatehpur (UP): SP leader Azam Khan on Saturday poked fun at PM Narendra Modi for his 'UP's adopted son' statement. The SP veteran said that Uttar Pradesh has not adopted PM Modi, but he has forced himself in the lap of Uttar Pradesh.
On Thursday, while speaking at a rally in Hardoi, the Prime Minister had said he was an adopted son of Uttar Pradesh and vowed not to ditch the people of the state.
"Krishna was born in Uttar Pradesh but made Gujarat his karma bhoomi. I was born in Gujarat but Uttar Pradesh has adopted me. It is a privilege for me. Uttar Pradesh is like 'mai-baap'. I am not a son who would ditch his mai-baap. I will always care about Uttar Pradesh," PM had said
