Some local leaders of Samajwadi Party have also reached Sitapur jail to receive him.
It is learnt that Azam Khan will be heading straight to Rampur from Sitapur Jail.
Meanwhile, giving her reaction to the interim bail to Azam Khan by the Supreme Court, his wife Tazeen Fatima expressed her gratitude towards the Court and also thanked all those who stood by the family during their rough time. Tazeen Fatima however dodged the question asked about Samajwadi Party Chief Akhilesh Yadav.
On the other hand, Azam Khan’s son, Abdullah Azam tweeted, “Inshallah tomorrow (May 20) with the first ray of sun in the morning my father will come out of jail like a new sun. The rays of this new dawn will remove the darkness of all oppression.”
Now all eyes will be on the equation of Azam Khan and SP Chief Akhilesh Yadav as there were speculations that Azam Khan was unhappy with the party leadership. Also there were allegations from people close to Khan that SP leadership had left Azam Khan to ‘rot in jail’.
Akhilesh Yadav’s estranged uncle and Pragatisheel Samajwadi Party Lohia, Chief, Shivpal Yadav had also stated that Samajwadi Party was not doing much for the jailed SP MLA.
