Amar challenges Sonia to contest election against him
Mirzapur, UP, Mar 31 (UNI) Samajwadi Party national general secretary Amar Singh today challenged Congress president Sonia Gandhi to contest elections against him from any of the Mainpuri, Etawah or Azamgarh constituencies of Uttar Pradesh.
''Ms Gandhi has challenged anyone to contest against her from Rae Bareli constituency. I also throw a challenge before her to fight against me from any of the Mainpuri, Etawah or Azamgarh segments,'' Mr Singh told newspersons here.
''Sonia Gandhi Lok Sabha ki sadasyata se istifa dekar, tyag ki devi nahin ban gayi hain (Ms Gandhi has not attained a goddess like status by resigning her Lok Sabha seat),'' he observed.
Mr Singh claimed that the Congress president's resignation was a mere political drama, which the masses can see clearly.
