I don’t even trust the policemen who are with me. Police can shoot me…They are not deployed for my security.” Akhilesh Yadav-led SP has fielded Azam Khan, who is sitting MP from Rampur Lok Sabha seat, from Rampur constituency. At present, Azam Khan is languishing in jail after several cases were registered against him.
