According to a police officer in Rampur last month, Fasahad Ali Khan Shanu, a close aide and Public Relations Officer for jailed leader and Rampur MLA Azam Khan, has been externed from the district for six months.Ali said the UP Goondas Act was invoked against him, and that the party won 111 seats in the recently concluded Assembly elections due to Muslims, but that he (Akhilesh) stayed quiet when FIRs were filed He also said that the party president (Akhilesh Yadav) believes our clothes stink.Ali has been sentenced to two years in prison under the Goondas Act.Ali was declared an offender under the Goondas Act in November 2019 and had been detained for six months by the district administration, though he was elected to the Rampur seat in the recent Assembly election.Akhilesh and his father (Mulayam Singh Yadav) were elected chief ministers by Muslims in the second week of April, but Akhilesh did not make Azam the Opposition Leader in the previous Assembly.

Aapne hamari dushmani kara di se saza sirf humko milegi aur mazey sirf aap lenge (You made us the enemy of BJP, we will be punished and you will enjoy power), he said.Ali also stated that he (Akhilesh Yadav) made a speech in the Assembly but did not mention Azam shahab even once, having Khan said that if we accept what Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said, Akhilesh does not want Azam to leave (of prison).Since the BJP took power in Uttar Pradesh in 2017, Azam has had 81 charges brought against him, and in a few cases, his wife Tanzeen Fatma and their son Abdullah Azam have been charged.Fatima and Abdullah both left prison and Azam has been in jail since February 2020, according to SPs Rampur district president Dhirendra Goel, who said that the action against Ali is being taken deliberately as the bypoll on the Rampur Lok Sabha seat vacated by Azam Khan is scheduled.Ali has been living a normal life in Rampur, so he was wrongly arrested (under the Goondas Act) and externalized.
