Sorry to Mayawati, Cong; SP conspired against me: Amar Singh

Expelled party leader Amar Singh apologised to UP CM Mayawati and the Congress party for accusing them of framing him in a Rs 500 cr financial fraud case.

New Delhi: Charging Samajwadi Party leaders
with conspiring against him, expelled party leader Amar Singh on Sunday apologised to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati and
the Congress party for accusing them of framing him in a Rs 500 crore financial fraud case.

"Fellow bloggers, this is my last blog posting on my
previous party, the Samajwadi Party. I want to apologise to
Chief Minister Mayawati because it was not she but the brother
and son of SP supremo (Mulayam Singh Yadav) who got me framed
in the case lodged at Babupurva police station (in Kanpur),"
Singh said.

"The truth came to light after two brothers of a leading
Mumbai-based industrial family ended hostilities," he said
apparently referring to the Ambani brothers.

His latest blog posting is being seen as an effort to
mend relations with the BSP and Congress.

Singh claimed after the two brothers ended their rivalry,
the conspirators gave him all the details as they were worried
about being exposed. "The two (brothers) would now set the
matter straight with people who have benefited from their
rivalry," he added.

He said he felt "shameful" for accusing Mayawati and
Congress party when fingers were pointed towards him in the
fraud case.

Singh said what he has mentioned in the blog cannot be
denied as he has documentary evidence, which he would bring
before the people.

Claiming he was framed to damage his political prospects,
Singh alleged an SP office bearer was paid Rs seven crore for
the purpose. He, however, did not elaborate on this point.

In October last year, an FIR was lodged against Singh
and his wife Pankaja in Kanpur in connection with a fraud
amounting to about Rs 500 crore.

In his 12-page document, the complainant, advocate Shiv
Kant Tiwari alleged that between 2003-2008 the couple
amalgamated their companies with other holdings and had
amassed nearly Rs 500 crore in the process.
