Lucknow, Apr 8: Samajwadi Party's poster boy Amar Singh is again in news. Just hours after he threatened to quit SP over his tussle with senior party leader Azam Khan, Amar took a sharp U-turn and said he had been misunderstood.
The rift in SP came to limelight when Amar asked party chief Mulayam Singh to choose between him and Azam Khan and said that he will not bare any more insults from Khan. "If people think that the party can survive without me but not without Azam Khan, I would not hesitate to say good-bye to Mulayam Singhji and make an exit from the party," said emotional Amar during a seminar.
Hours later Amar said to mediapersons at his resident, "I may leave this world but will never leave the Samajwadi Party". Party sources suggest that SP general secretary's U-turn came after Mulayam reminded him that his present position in party is entirely due to the blessings showered on him by the SP. Amar Singh soon went into damage control mode and said, "There is nothing wrong. Everything is normal. There are no differences."
“Mulayam Singh Yadav is my mentor and there is no question of rift," Amar Singh said, adding he had strong ties with the SP supremo and that none can break it.
