Samajwadi Party power tussle a programmed drama, claims Amar Singh
New Delhi : The rift is clearly seen between Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh and SP patron Mulayam Singh. Once, a good friends are now spilling beans against each other. SP leader Amar Singh was with Mulayam Singh during the tussle with Akhilesh Yadav for the party symbol.
Going against his old friend, Amar Singh claimed that the political turmoil in the party was a programmed drama to garner votes.
He also said that SP patron Mulayam Singh and his son and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh are one and will remain one.
“It was a programmed drama in which all of us were given a role. I subsequently realised that we are being used... I came to realise it was a ploy to distract from the anti-incumbency, law and order situation,” he said.
Amar has been blamed by a section of the party leadership for creating fissures between Mulayam and Akhilesh.
Recently, he was relegated to the back benches of the Rajya Sabha by his party.
