Lucknow, Feb 2 (ANI): Former Samajwadi Party General Secretary Amar Singh welcomed the move by the party to sack him and Lok Sabha member Jaya Prada describing it as a blessing for both of them.
However, Amar Singh called the move as dictatorial.
Amar Singh said, "I had asked for a sick leave from the party for 14 years of work to rest. The party cannot function in a dictatorial and feudal system."
"I have been called mad, shameless. This is what I got in return for 14 years of service. Had that not happened, I would have been taking a rest," he added referring to the remarks made by Samajwadi Party General Secretary Mohan Singh.
Amar Singh further said, "I will not say anything to Mulayam Singhji. He has blessed me. It is a blessing in disguise. He has liberated me."
Earlier today, Mohan Singh had announced the party's decision to expel Amar Singh and Jaya Prada for violating party norms and spoiling the reputation of the party. (ANI)
