india Updated: Mar 27, 2009 23:20 IST

Ajeya Singh, the elder son of former prime minister V P Singh, on Friday expressed hope that he will get an LJP ticket to contest from Fatehpur, despite the party’s electoral agreements with Samajwadi Party.

Speaking to reporters in Fatehpur, Singh denied the recent statements of Samajwadi Party general secretary Amar Singh that he (Ajeya Singh) who was declared the LJP’s candidate from Fatehpur will not be contesting polls and said, “My decision to contest Lok Sabha polls from Fatehpur remains unchanged.”

On Thursday, the SP, LJP and the Rashtriya Janta Dal had decided that LJP and RJD will not be fielding any candidates in Uttar Pradesh.

Singh said, “Through politics, I plan to serve the people and for this I will contest the Lok Sabha elections from Fatehpur at any cost.” The party will decide on his candidature on its meeting on March 30, he added.
