New Delhi: Sending overtures to expelled BJP leader Jaswant Singh, Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav on Wednesday said he "liked" the former union minister and it was up to him to join his party.

"I like him," Yadav said, adding, that it would be for Singh to decide on joining SP.
Asked whether he would like the expelled BJP leader to
join his party, Yadav said "It is entirely his decision...It
is up to him what he decides for his future."

"I share a good relationship with Jaswant Singh though he
is in the BJP. He is not a fundamentalist. He is a good leader
with a good heart. He has the qualities of a good leader,"
Yadav said and lamented that the BJP sacked him
unceremoniously.
Sources close to Yadav said the SP is keen to rope in
Singh in a bid to consolidate its Muslim vote bank against the
backdrop of his book on Pakistan founder M A Jinnah.
