The inauguration of Azam Khan's Mohammad Ali Jauhar University at Rampur turned into an occasion for Samajwadi Party (SP) president Mulayam Singh Yadav and Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav to lavish praises on Khan.
Mulayam, who inaugurated the university, said: "I have no words to praise Khan. Our nature is quite similar. Khan has completed what he decided. I knew that this university will be a reality when I had laid the foundation stone in 2006. I have full faith in Khan."
He also asked Khan to go ahead with his plan of setting up a medical college and assured that there will be no dearth of funds. "People will remember Khan for several generations. He has done such a great work by setting up a grand university," the SP chief said.
Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, too, praised Khan and assured that there will be no scarcity of funds. "I had asked him about the allocation before budget but he did not say anything. We have given Rs 10 crore and it will be increased in next budget. I know him, he will not say anything on his own," said Akhilesh.
Khan, in his address, became emotional and was in tears twice. Known for his oratory skills, Khan lashed out at his political adversary, the Nawab family of Rampur for keeping Rampur backward, while lauding Mulayam and Akhilesh. "When the CM asked me what should he announce at the function, I had only said that let there be a bond of faith. You become mine and I turn yours, this is all I want," said Khan.
Mulayam, meanwhile, used the occasion for a veiled attack at then Governor T V Rajeshwar. "I had advised 'him' to sign the file related to the Jauhar University. But it did not happen, it was forwarded," said Mulayam in reference to the Raj Bhawan's objection to the university in 2004.
