Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh said on Saturday the real competition in Uttar Pradesh elections would be between his party and the BJP.

On demonetisation, Singh said the impact would be evaluated past 50 days. “Prime Minister Narendra Modi said things will get normal within 50 days of the decision. So we should give him 50 days.”

Jaya Prada supported Singh and said she would comment on the note ban issue after 50 days.

People’s University conferred the Degree of ‘Humane Letters’ (Honoris Causa) on Amar Singh, member Rajya Sabha and BrahMos Aerospace chief executive officer and managing director Sudhir Kumar Mishra

People’s University chancellor and People’s Group chairman Suresh N Vijaywargia presided over the function.

Jaya Prada, Madhya Pradesh Private University Regulatory Commission chairman Akhilesh Pandey, Suresh N. Vijaywargia and vice chancellor VK Pandya conferred the degrees to 71 post-graduate students of People’s University. The toppers from management, engineering, pharmacy and nursing were felicitated on the occasion.
