New Delhi, Jan 16: With Delhi Assembly election round the corner, the list of people jockeying to join the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led BJP is getting bigger with every passing day. After reports of AAP leader Shazia Ilmi and film star Jayaprada joining BJP, now speculation is rife that former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh has also knocked at saffron party's door.
According to IBN live report, Amar Singh has said that he is eager to join the BJP.
"I am in touch with the BJP. I have met RSS, but no response so far. I can join the BJP. I am not averse to it. Modi has inclusive politics," Singh was quoted as saying in the report.
Amar Singh, who was expelled from the Samajwadi Party along with Jaya Prada, is now struggling hard to remain relevant in political circle.
He floated his own political party, Rashtriya Lok Manch, in 2011, and fielded candidates in 360 of the 403 seats in Uttar Pradesh in the 2012 assembly polls. However his party did not win a single seat in these elections. He joined the Rashtriya Lok Dal party in March 2014, and contested from Fatehpur Sikri, but lost miserably.
The report said if his friend Jaya Prada managed to get into BJP's fold, it would make his entry into the saffron party. But, at the same time many in BJP would oppose his entry given in controversial past.
