MLA from Isauli seat Abrar Ahmad on Monday sent a memorandum to the Election Commission through the district magistrate demanding that the ban imposed on Khan to be lifted.
    
Ahmed threatened to go on a hunger strike and stage a protest if the ban was not lifted within 48 hours.
    
The MLA alleged that when the poll panel could lift the ban on Narendra Modi's aide Amit Shah who is accused of spreading communal hatred then why can't it remove the restriction on Khan.
    
The Election Commission on April 23 issued a fresh show-cause notice to Khan for reportedly making objectionable remarks against it and circumventing a ban imposed on him from campaigning in Uttar Pradesh.
    
The show-cause notice was issued to the senior SP leader days after the Election Commission banned him from campaigning in the state following his controversial 'Kargil' remarks.
