Amar Singh expresses hope of forming secular govt.

By Super Admin

New Delhi, May 4 (ANI): Samajwadi Party general secretary Amar Singh on Monday expressed the hope of forming a secular government in the country.hile holding a road show in Jama Masjid area of New Delhi as part of campaign for the general elections, Singh said, we would form a secular government in the country, if we get people's support and the required number.

"We will form a secular government. The rest will be decided by public and the numbers we get," said Singh.

The SP had extended support to the Congress-led UPA Government in the last months of its tenure, but the alliance seemed to have run into rough weather over several issues in the recent past, one being the let-off given to the Italian origin businessman, Ottavio Quattrocchi in the Bofors case.

Amar Singh attacked Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for his defence of the let-off given by the CBI to Quattrocchi while showing indifference towards the alleged involvement of SP chief Mulayam Singh in disproportionate asset case registered against him.

"The CBI can exonerate Quattrochi, Sajjan Kumar, Sunil Sharma, Tytler, but in the case of Mulayam Singh, who is not involved in any case, the PM has no concern," Singh said.

According to reports, SP's change in stance towards the Congress might spring from the fact that the party hopes to get enough numbers in Uttar Pradesh and thus emerge powerful after the elections and the Congress might need its support in forging an alliance after the elections. (ANI)
