Reacting to the litany of cases against Azam Kham Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav in an earlier press conference had said that Rampur MP was being wrongfully targeted by the government. The former Uttar Pradesh chief minister had also called for a state-wide protest against the government's alleged mistreatment of Khan.
