Lucknow: With Azam Khan's wife Tanzeen Fatima's poll victory in the Rampur bypolls, the state assembly will now see the mother-son create history.

Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan and his son Abdullah Azam had won the 2017 Assembly elections and were members of the state assembly. This was Azam Khan's ninth term from Rampur while Abdullah Azam had just made his political debut from Suar in the same district.

While Azam Khan played an active role in the House proceedings, Abdullah Azam was often seen sitting in the back rows and keenly observing the proceedings of the House. He rarely interacted with the media and did not join the party's shouting brigade that often disturbed the Assembly.

Azam Khan resigned from the Assembly in June after he won the Lok Sabha elections from Rampur.

The state assembly would have seen another father-daughter duo if Chhaya Varma, daughter of BSP MLA Lalji Varma had won the Jalalpur seat. Chhaya lost the seat to the Samajwadi Party.

"Kalyan Singh had quit state politics when his son Rajvir Singh won his first assembly election in 2002. Rajnath Singh had also moved to national politics when his son Pankaj Singh won the 2017 elections. Naresh Agarwal and Pramod Tiwari were also in Rajya Sabha when Naresh's son Nitin Agarwal and Pramod' daughter Aradhana Misra entered the Vidhan Sabha," the official said.

Even Mulayam Singh and Akhilesh Yadav were not in the state assembly together though they were both MPs at the same time.
