Mulayam meets Amar Singh; latter to get SP nomination for Rajya Sabha?

Lucknow: There is speculation that estranged allies Mulayam Singh Yadav and Amar Singh could join hands once again.

Mulayam on Wednesday met Amar Singh amid reports that the Samajwadi Party could give a Rajya Sabha ticket to the latter.

Also present at the meeting was Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.

Rajya Sabha polls for 10 seats will be held in the state on November 20.

The SP is likely to take a final call on the candidates on Friday, when Mulayam will chair the party's parliamentary board meeting.

As per vote share, the SP will send six candidates to the Upper House.

The remaining four seats will be shared by BSP (2), BJP (1) and Congress-RLD (1).
