AZAmSamajwadi Party’s senior leader Azam Khan recently announced that his son Abdullah will be contesting from the Swar Tanda assembly seat in the upcoming UP polls.

Abdullah is Azam Khan’s youngest son and is also the CEO of Jauhar University in Rampur.

Abdullah addressed his first political rally in April 2014 in the run-up to the Lok Sabha poll after the election commission (EC) banned his father from campaigning for his inflammatory speeches.

The party had won 224 of the 403 seats in 2012 state elections and lost terribly to the BJP in the 2014 Lok Sabha election, winning just five of the 80 seats, while BJP won 71.
