After expulsion from Samajwadi Party, Amar Singh today praised Congress and ruled out joining BSP.

But he suggested that he could do business with the Mayawati-led party on issues like trifurcation of Uttar

As regards Congress, Singh struck a conciliatory note.

He said that though the "family" was important there, it was different from other parties which are run by political
families including the SP.

"There is a difference (between two parties). In Congress Rahul Gandhi talks of internal party democracy. The
party holds polls, there is a war room to tackle situations, there is a core committee to take decisions.

"It is not where the party president says something and the next day the exact opposite of what he had said
happens. This gives out a bad image of party because it affects political credibility of the party," Singh told PTI in
an interview.

He, however, hastened to add that he was not "cosying upto Congress".

At the same time, the 54-year-old leader made it clear that he was not a child seeking admission in nursery when
asked whether he would apply for entry into the Congress which till recently was his favourite punching bag.

Singh, a former AICC member, however, made it clear that his DNA was not anti-Congress, he has many personal
friends in Congress and he was the "driving force" in the UPA-I and UPA-II.
