New Delhi: Expelled Samajwadi Party leader
Amar Singh on Friday described the confrontation between BJP chief
Nitin Gadkari and his former party`s leadership as an example
of cheap politics.
In his latest blog posting, Singh wrote that SP spokesman
Mohan Singh, instead of keeping quiet after Gadkari publicly
regretted his remarks against SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and
RJD leader Lalu Prasad, retaliated and abused him.
"What has happened to the culture of my former party?
Even after Gadkari publicly expressed regret on his comments,
Mohan Singh refused to forgive him and abused him in return,
and said that the party will take legal action against him,"
Amar Singh wrote.
He further added that "either SP is bereft of issues that
is why it is retaliating in such a manner in order to hog
limelight, or it is the influence of Lalu`s company. If this
is the situation then even I will slam a case against Mohan
Singh for openly abusing me in public. This is cheapness, not
politics. This kind of culture is the epitome of uncivilised
Amar said that when he had a minor squabble with BJP
member S S Ahluwalia in Rajya Sabha during a discussion on
Liberhan Commission`s report, he had later met him and
apologised for his behaviour.
"I had said something unnecessary to L K Advani during
the time when SP was lending support to UPA-I over the nuclear
deal issue, but had later apologised to him for my comments,"
