New Delhi, May 17: In what seems to be an attempt to reinforce that his party was committed to secular politics, Samajwadi party General Secretary Amar Singh on Sunday, May 17 has said that SP was ready to support the Congress.

"The SP is committed to secular politics. I will meet Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee today evening, and tell them that our party is ready to lend 'constructive support' to the Congress," Singh said at a press conference.

When asked about his 'friendship' with the Congress leader Digvijay Singh, Singh said he was ready to hold talks.

"Past acrimony should not be the basis of future relationship. I am ready to hold talks with Digvijay Singh," he added.

Singh had earlier, accused Digvijay Singh of spoiling the pre-poll seat-sharing talks between the Congress and Samajwadi Party.

When asked to comment on party leader Azam Khan's resignation as party General Secretary, Singh said he had no differences with him.

"I acknowledge Khan's work in the formation of the SP. I also describe Khan as my elder brother. I have no differences with him," Amar Singh added.
