Amar Singh, who resigned from Samajwadi Party posts, on Friday came under attack from a senior leader of the party who described as "most immoral" his public criticism of the grip of Mulayam Singh Yadav's family on the outfit.
SP general secretary Mohan Sing said the timing of Amar Singh's resignation and going public with his comments on SP's functioning was "most immoral".
"When party leaders and cadres are facing immense pressure from Mayawati government in Uttar Pradesh, Amar Singh announced his resignation on the eve of the crucial legislative council elections in the state. It had a demoralising effect on party cadres," Mohan Singh told PTI over phone.
He said "whatever political identity Amar Singh on Friday has is because of Samajwadi Party as no other political party would have given him the kind of important responsibilities that SP did and going public about its functioning is most immoral," he said.
Mohan Singh, who has been closely associated with Mulayam Singh Yadav, took exception to allegations of family control in Samajwadi Party.
"If this is the case, Amar Singh who had been in the decision-making position in the party in the past 15 years, is to be blamed equally," he said.
Mohan Singh recalled as to how Amar Singh, after his kidney transplant in Singapore, had thanked his non-political friends for standing by him.
"Since these friends have business interests which could no longer be fulfilled by the SP, Amar Singh might have decided to quit," the SP leader said.
