Amar Singh`s Lok Manch faces rout in UP polls

Singh had fielded 360 candidates across UP of his year-old party and had campaigned hard with Jaya Prada.



New Delhi: Rashtriya Lok Manch, the party
floated by Amar Singh, one time close confidante of SP chief
Mulayam Singh Yadav, drew a blank in the Uttar Pradesh
assembly elections as none of its 360 candidates was able to
win any seat.

Singh had fielded 360 candidates across UP of his
year-old party and had campaigned hard with Jaya Prada, a
former SP Lok Sabha member.

He addressed several meetings where he attacked Yadav and
supported the cause of Muslims.

But apparently, it failed to influence voters of UP who
gave a thumping majority to SP.

On 6 January 2010, Singh had resigned as general
secretary of the party as well as from its parliamentary board
and as its spokesperson following sharp differences with
Yadav.
