"He (Singh) does not deserve to hold the pivotal position. He is used to tolerate all undeserving things," Azam said. He also said that he was saddened by the conviction of two leaders - Lalu Prasad Yadav and Rasheed Masood.

"Sentencing of political stalwarts hurt me. I believe the institution of democracy has been weakened by dumping two political leaders behind the bars," he said.

"Who has done what could be a subject of discussion but raising up extreme step in such matters of political leaders emits a smell of conspiracy hatched by certain forces to weaken democracy," he said.
