Rift in SP over Amar's return

Rift in SP over Amar's return

Former Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh’s possible return to the Samajwadi Party (SP) has triggered an all-out war within the party with a section expressing serious reservations over Singh’s reported “homecoming plan”.

The issue has also brought to the fore the ongoing “subtle war” within SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav’s family.

According to the sources, party general secretary Ram Gopal Yadav and senior leader Azam Khan have apparently made it clear that they will oppose any move to re-induct Singh into the partyfold.
“Amar Singh is a tall leader...in comparison I am very small one...I can not say anything about it,” Khan said when asked about the reports stating Singh’s return.

On the other hand, senior UP minister and Mulayam’s younger brother Shivpal Singh Yadav said on Sunday that Khan would have “no problem” if Singh returned to the party.

In the past Khan and Singh had been involved in wordy duels. Khan had opposed Jaya Prada in 2009 LS poll. Khan had then been expelled from SP.
