No re-entry for Amar Singh in SP: Ram Gopal Yadav
Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Ram Gopal Yadav today rejected reports of former SP leader and Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament (MP) Amar Singh's re-entry into the party.
The reports were fuelled after Mulayam Singh Yadav had shared the same stage with Singh during the inauguration of 367-acre Janeshwar Mishra Park.
Amar Singh, who used to be a confidante of Mulayam once upon a time, had reportedly joined the mega event on the latter's invitation.
In January 2010, Amar Singh had resigned from all posts of Samajwadi Party and was expelled from the party by Mulayam Singh Yadav in February 2010.
Since then, Amar Singh went on to form his own party 'Rashtriya Lok Manch' but failed to create an impact. He then tried his luck by contesting Lok Sabha polls on Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) ticket from Fatehpur Sikri seat of UP, but lost.
Ram Gopal Yadav also said that the Modi factor is over and will have no bearing in the upcoming elections.
Blaming the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for purposely polarizing elections and spreading violence to disrupt the polls, Yadav added, "BJP has the misconception that they will win with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's name again. Modi factor is over."
BJP has been facing criticism from the opposition parties over rising communal violence since the NDA government has taken power.
