Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh today said as his resignation from key posts was not yet accepted by Mulayam Singh Yadav, he would not be able to actively participate in party-related issues.

"My resignation has not been accepted by Mulayam ji. I hold him in high esteem and he is my well wisher. However, I am just an ordinary party worker now and, therefore unlike earlier, I will not be able to participate in party-related issues," Singh told a TV channel in New Delhi.

He, however, added he had no differences with the SP chief.

"I have no differences with Mulayam Singh Yadav. However, in reply to Ram Gopal's comment that film actors have not been beneficial for the party, I would like to say that Jaya Bachchan is in the party on her own esteem and Jaya Prada (party's Rampur MP) has broken the Congress stronghold there," Singh said.

Asked about his future course of action, Singh said keeping in mind the interest of his supporters and those who joined SP on his assurance "I will have to find an alternative for the sake of my supporters".

Singh denied rumours having spoken to Congress Rajya Sabha MP Rajeev Shukla over him joining the party.

Earlier in the day, Muradabad MLA Sandeep Agarwal demanded the party chief to immediately restore Singh to the posts he had resigned from otherwise he and 25 of his office colleagues in the assembly will be "bound to quit".
