Azam Khan strikes controversy; urges to demolish Parliament, President house

Uttar Pradesh minister Azam Khan on Saturday, gave a controversial remark calling for the demolition of the Rashtrapati Bhavan and the Parliament building saying that they are 'symbols of feudalism'. Earlier, on several occasions, the minister also said that Taj Mahal should be razed for being symbol of feudalism.

During an address at a college in Rampur, Khan said, "You must accept the fact that the number one symbol of feudalism (in India) is Taj Mahal. The President's residence and the Parliament building come next".

Meanwhile, the UP minister came out in support of JNUSU leader Kanhaiya Kumar and said that he did not say anything which may be termed as 'anti-national'. "Versions of Kumar's speech that appeared in various telecasts did not show what the Union government has been saying", he said.
