UP: Amid SP rift Amar Singh leaves for Delhi from London

Amid the allegation of causing feud in the Samajwadi Party, party MP Amar Singh on Sunday left for Delhi from London on Sunday and is expected to meet Mulayam Singh Yadav on Monday.

Samajwadi Party general secretary Ram Gopal Yadav, earlier in the day demanded for Singh’s ouster from the party. “The National Executive of the Samajwadi Party wants sacking of Amar Singh immediately,” Ram Gopal Yadav said while addressing a party convention at the Janeshwar Mishra Park in Lucknow.

Singh, however, on Sunday insisted that he is not behind the feud in party chief Mulayam Singh’s family. “I just want to request the people putting allegations against me that please let me live. If unnecessarily I am being looked as a reason of the feud in the Samajwadi family then Mulayam Singh must leave me and should relieve me,” Singh said.

He further requested Mulayam to save him for being portrayed as a villain in the family feud. “I have no idea, who is getting tickets from the party and who is not. Some people are putting inappropriate posters against me, burning my effigies and blaming me for the family feud in Samajwadi Party,” he said.

Singh further said that if Samajwadi party chief truly believes that he has manipulated the party leader then he should reveal it to everyone. In a dramatic turn of events, the Samajwadi Party on Saturday revoked the expulsion of Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and Ramgopal Yadav, a day after they were ousted from the party for six years over anti-party activities.
