Lucknow, March 2: Former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh in an interview to TV channel hit out at Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and said that in UP it will be BJP who will form the new government.
He said in the interview that he agrees with Mulayam Singh Yadav's statement that BJP will get an absolute majority in UP. He however, did not make it clear as to which statement of Mulayam he referred to.
Singh criticised Akhilesh's decision to ally with the Congress for the UP elections. He said that he has always considered Akhilesh as his son but as the former grew up, he stopped respecting him. Singh added that he will not wish Akhilesh a win in UP election but he wished him a long life.
Singh questioned the criteria used by SP to expel him from the party. He said that when people like Arun Verma and Gayatri Prajapati can still campaign for SP why he has been expelled. Verma and Prajapati have been accused of rape. Amar Singh said SP considered only him as the bad influence in the party.
