'Masood Azhar's kin': Yogi's dig at Cong candidate

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath -- who launched the BJP's election campaign in Uttar Pradesh with a rally in Saharanpur -- generated controversy today by linking the Congress candidate to Pakistani terrorist Masood Azhar. Congress's Imran Masood, an influential leader from the area, is up against the BJP's sitting lawmaker Raghav Lakhanpal in Saharanpur, which will vote in the first phase on April 11. The third contestant is Samajwadi Party candidate Haji Fazal-ur-Rehman, who, while being a first-timer in Lok Sabha elections, is considered a serious opponent because of the combined heft of the alliance.
