Mumbai, Jan 10: Film actor Sanjay Dutt on Saturday night, Jan 9, announced his resignation as general secretary of the Samjawadi Party
Dutt's move came just days after Amar Singh quit as SP general secretary.
Addressing a press conference at his Bandra residence here, Dutt said, "When the Supreme Court did not give me a chance to contest Lok Sabha elections, Amar Singh made me the general secretary of the party."
"If he is no more the general secretary, I am also quitting the post today," said Dutt.
"Amar Singh was hurt by many people in the party. I am also feeling hurt that he was hurt. If he is not the national general secretary, I will also not be in the same post."
Dutt ruled out resigning from the party for the time being.
"We (actors) are touchy people..I feel hurt. I had slogged in UP polls but there is no recognition for this in the party. I am happy that I am quitting the post," he added.
