Lucknow, Sep 20: Amar Singh, who survived the recent "outsider" storm in ruling Samajwadi Party, was today appointed SP General Secetary by party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav. "You have been appointed general secretary of Samajwadi Party.
I hope in the coming days you will strengthen the party in Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections," Mulayam said in a handwritten letter to Amar.
The brief letter in Hindi signed by Mulayam on his Lok Sabha letter head was sent to media from state SP chief Shivpal Yadav's official e-mail id.
Though SP big wigs were strongly opposed to Amar Singh, often described as an "outsider", Mulayam threw his weight behind him, first by making him a Rajya Sabha member some time back and now allotting him an important party post.
