Expelled Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh and Lok Sabha MP from Rampur Jaya Prada on Tuesday met Maharashtra governor K Sankaranarayanan, to seek pardon for actor Sanjay Dutt.
Dutt, who has already undergone imprisonment of 18 months, was on Thursday sentenced to five years imprisonment in 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case.
"Amar Singh and Jaya Prada met the governor on Dutt issue," a Raj Bhawan spokesperson said. Before arriving at the Raj Bhawan, the duo drove to the Bandra residence of Sanjay Dutt and met the actor.
Actor-turned-politician, Jaya Prada, had earlier said she was "heart broken" at the news of Sanjay Dutt's jail term pronounced by the Supreme Court and called him an "innocent person", who had been caught wrongly.
"He is an innocent person. It is very unfortunate.
Knowingly or unknowingly, it has been written in his fate that he has to struggle like this. Particularly for Sanjay Dutt, if you see the background of his family and all. His father Sunil Dutt served a lot for the country and even in politics he had a very good name," Jaya Prada said.
