Azamgarh, Nov 15 (UNI) Rebel Samajwadi Party (SP) MP and Samajwadi Kranti Dal (SKD) president Beni Prasad Verma said he was ready to rejoin the SP if party general secretary Amar Singh left it.
''It is Mr Singh, who has created such differences between SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and me...after 35 years of friendship, Mr Yadav turned a foe only because of him,'' Mr Verma claimed while addressing media here late yesterday.
''Now, my 'home coming' is only possible, when Mr Singh resigns from the party,'' he said.
Lambasting the SP general secretary for ''ruining'' the party, Mr Verma, who is also former union telecomm minister, said ''he is only marring the 'progress' while being in the party.'' Noting the current situation in Nandigram (West Bengal), the SKD leader said, ''all the parties are trying to get political benefits on the issue, except Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress.'' The Centre has maintained silence on the Nandigram issue, which is further a matter of concern, Mr Verma observed.
