Suspended Samajwadi Party MP Raj Babbar, on Tuesday sought to keep his relations with party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav intact hailing him for his secular credentials and ruled out joining any other party.
However, his attack against Amar Singh continued and Babbar showed no signs of remorse despite the disciplinary action against him.
Reacting to his suspension from the SP Parliamentary Party, the actor-turned-politician said he was still with the Samajwadi party and that he had no plans to join any other outfit.
"I am even now a worker of the Samajwadi party.. I have only been suspended not expelled. Mulayamji is my elder brother. I am always ready to speak with him as I still believe he is a strong leader of the secular forces," he said.
Shortly after his suspension, he went to CPI(M) headquarters and met leaders Prakash Karat and Sitaram Yechury.
Later, he unleashed a fresh barrage of criticism against Amar Singh without taking his name, accusing him of promoting "middleman culture."
