New Delhi: Rajya Sabha member Amar Singh on Sunday said he wanted to forget his ties with Samajwadi Party, which he had represented in the Upper House.

"I request all to stop linking my name with the Samajwadi Party. I want to forget my history with the SP," said Singh, who had a meteoric rise in politics during his 14-year stint in SP and was its public face.

He was talking to reporters after being discharged from the AIIMS where he was undergoing treatment for over a month for kidney-related problems.

55-year-old Singh, who is an independent member now, was arrested on September 6 in connection with his alleged role in 2008 cash-for-vote scam and given bail on humanitarian ground on October 24.

The SP had expelled Singh in February last year to "free" the party from "intruders" who wanted to "dent" its socialist image, charging Singh with indulging in anti-party activities by attacking the party leadership.
