No plans to join SP: Amar Singh
Former Samajwadi Party (SP) leader and Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament (MP) Amar Singh today denied having any plans to re- join the party.
"I have no plans to join SP. Ram Gopal Yadav is correct. My relations with Mulayam Singh Yadav have improved so I can talk to him whenever I want and I don't need a license to talk to him," said Singh.
Earlier today, SP leader Ram Gopal Yadav had rejected reports of Amar Singh joining the party once again.
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 in February the same year, was expelled from the party by Mulayam Singh Yadav.
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.
