Amar went 'all alone' to lend party's backing to UPA-II: SP

After his party bailed out the Congress-led Government on the Indo-US nuclear deal issue, Amar Singh started bargaining with it for his "own interests" and after the elections even went ahead "all alone" to lend the party's backing to UPA-II, the Samajwadi Party alleged today.

After his party bailed out the Congress-led Government on the Indo-US nuclear deal issue, Amar Singh started bargaining with it for his "own interests" and after the elections even went ahead "all alone" to lend the party's backing to UPA-II, the Samajwadi Party alleged today.

At the same time, party leader Mohan Singh made it clear that the SP does not plan to withdraw support to the government saying it does not believe in bringing instability at the Centre through frequent elections.

"Even though several party leaders were in favour of sitting in the Opposition after last year's Lok Sabha polls, Amar Singh went all alone to the Rashtrapati Bhavan to give the party's letter of support to UPA-II to President Pratibha Patil," Mohan Singh told PTI in an interview.

He claimed that extending support to the Government was not the party's decision and therefore no one accompanied Amar Singh.

Amar Singh could not be reached for his comment.

Mohan Singh, who was made the General Secretary and Spokesman of the party recently following the rebel leader's resignation from these posts, declared that the SP was determined to force Amar Singh to resign from his Rajya Sabha seat. And would not fall into his trap by expelling him.
