Mumbai, Feb 2(ANI): Samajwadi Party MP and actress Jaya Bachchan on Tuesday expressed disappointment over the party's decision to expel former General Secretary Amar Singh.

Bachchan said that the decision taken by party's parliamentary board meeting chaired by chief Mulayam Singh Yadav will come back to haunt the party, as Amar Singh is a quality leader.

"I am sad and hurt. This is a very wrong decision and would hurt the party in future," Bachchan said.

She also said that if the party's supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav found any fault in her behaviour, she was ready to face the action.

"If Mulayam Singhji feels that I have made a mistake than he can suspend me as well," Bachchan said.

Earlier in the day, SP General Secretary Mohan Singh announced party's decision to expel its estranged leaders Amar Singh, Jaya Prada and four others grounds of indulging in anti-party activities and denting its public image.

He also mentioned that the party has suspended primary membership of four provincial lawmakers - Madan Chauhan, Sandeep Agarwal, Ashok Chandel and Sarvesh Singh - all regarded as supporters of Amar Singh.

According to reports, the decision was taken following a rift between Yadav and Amar Singh after the party's poor show in its stronghold, Uttar Pradesh, winning just 20 seats out of 80, in the last general elections. (ANI)
