Stop linking my name with SP: Amar Singh
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.
