Hitting out at Priya Dutt for her reported remarks that her father Sunil Dutt would not have liked his son Sanjay Dutt contesting election on a Samajwadi Party ticket, party leader Amar Singh on Wednesday said Dutt junior had campaigned for the party even when the late star of Hindi films was alive.
"When the late Sunil Dutt was alive, Sanjay had campaigned for Jaya Prada when she had contested from Rampur (in Uttar Pradesh). He (Sunil Dutt) should have then asked Sanjay not to campaign," Singh told reporters in New Delhi.
Singh claimed when Congress had asked Sunil Dutt to campaign against Jaya Prada, he had refused. "He had said he would not campaign against people in the industry be it Jaya Prada, Shatrughan Sinha or Hema Malini."
According to the SP general secretary, it was Sunil Dutt only who had introduced him to Sanjay.
