Sambhal, October 3: On the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti 2019, a Samajwadi Party (SP) leader was seen crying in front of Mahatma Gandhi statue and missing his presence. The clip shows SP District President Firoz Khan and his supporters crying while bowing in front of Gandhiji's statue. The video of the act which is going viral on social media has raised questions that whether he was actually crying or acting. Samajwadi Party Leader Firoz Khan Fools UP Police by Wearing 'Sehra' to Reach Rampur For Expressing Solidarity With Azam Khan.
On October 2, Khan with other SP leaders reached Fawara Chowk in Chandausi Kotwali area and paid homage to the father of the nation. Khan, in front of the camera, started crying and said, "where did you go Bapu. You liberated such a big country and left us alone. All our desires are ending slowly.”

He isn't acting. And everyone stop blaming him.
He is right he misses Mahatma Gandhi so what's wrong in it.
They looked so nice on the Notes he collected before Modiji came in.

Interestingly, Firoz Khan is the same person who had dressed as a groom, while his supports posed as “baraatis" in order to reach Rampur to attend a meeting called by SP chief Akhilesh Yadav last month. The leader had come up with baarat and sehra idea to dodge the police restrictions imposed in the city.
