Notably, it was Azam Khan who had campaigned for Jaya Prada and helped her win the seat in 2004.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Jaya Prada is all set to win the Rampur seat, where she is contesting against her former colleague Azam Khan.

Jaya Prada switched loyalty from the Samajwadi Party to the BJP, months before the Lok Sabha election began -- a point that Azam Khan, an SP leader, has been using against her.

Azam Khan made several derogatory remarks against her in the run up to the election, and Jaya Prada always gave it back to him with gusto. This even saw Khan being banned by the Election Commission of India for 72 hours.

Rampur went to polls on April 23 along with 115 constituencies across 15 states in the third phase of the election.

Jaya Prada has won Rampur seat twice in 2004 and 2009, while Azam Khan has represented the area for a record nine times in the Uttar Pradesh assembly.
