New Delhi: Dubbing Samajwadi Party supremo
Mulayam Singh Yadav a "don", expelled party leader Amar Singh
on Friday night questioned why Jaya Bachchan was renominated for Rajya
Sabha elections when he was removed from the party for
bringing the Bollywood star in the organisation.

"I want to ask SP`s don Mulayam Singh Yadav as to why he
renominated Jaya Bachchan for Rajya Sabha polls when I was
expelled from the party for bringing her into the SP fold,"
Singh said in his latest blog postings.
His comments came hours after Bachchan turned down SP`s
nomination to contest RS polls once again as the party
candidate from Uttar Pradesh.

Singh claimed that this morning only he had requested
Amitabh Bachchan to allow his wife Jaya to contest the polls
if she so wished.

He said the `Big B; has always insisted that the Bachchan
family should maintain a distance from politics.
Singh wondered whether the party`s decision to field its
national spokesperson Mohan Singh in place of Jaya Bachchan
was a reward for attacking him (Amar) and his supporters.

He said that after becoming a Rajya Sabha member, "an
unwell" Mohan Singh could get treatment at government expense.
