Alleging that Sanjay Dutt was being threatened by a London-based person for planning to contest Lok Sabha elections on a Samajwadi Party ticket, Amar Singh on Thursday said he would send a written complaint to the prime minister and the Congress president in this regard.
"One Anshuman Mishra, who claims to be close to Union Law Minister Hansraj Bhardwaj had been calling up Sanjay and asking to discontinue his association with the SP. He claims that Bhardwajji could send him to jail," party general secretary Amar Singh told reporters.
Singh hastened to add that "Bhardwajji is a gentleman. He is an old loyalist of the Gandhi family...That person (Mishra) is exploiting his name. I should caution him (Bhardwaj) to steer clear of him."
While Bhardwaj was out of the Capital and could not be contacted for his comments, Anshuman Mishra told a TV channel that since Singh craves for media attention, he can say anything.
Referring to Sanjay Dutt and his sister Priya, he also advised Singh against creating fissures between siblings.
"I have already informed Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress President Sonia Gandhi. Now I will complain to them in writing," Singh added.
