Coming in defence of actor Amitabh Bachchan, Amar Singh said on Tuesday that how can Amitabh Bachchan decide on who is guilty for the 2002 Gujarat riots as the Supreme Court will take decision in this matter and has the authority to do so.
Amar Singh was speaking at Symbiosis Institute of Media and Communications (SIMC) in Pune, where he shared stage with the actor. The coming together of the two hold significance amid reports of rift between former Samajwadi Party leader and the Bachchan family.
Earlier on Sunday, Amar Singh had taken a dig at Jaya Bachchan, who had said in a press meet that she missed him, saying he too misses her as she did not support him when he was expelled from the party.
"Jaya bhabhi (sister-in-law) said she is in SP and Amar Singh brought her to the party. She said that his politics was my politics. Now, he is not there, I miss him very much," Amar Singh said in New Delhi. "Listen, Jayaji, I don't know where you are. I want to tell you that your brother-in-law was insulted. SP general secretary Mohan Singh said that Jaya Bachchan is just a showpiece and all film actors are just actors," he said.
Amar Singh was apparently hitting out at the actor-turned-politician as she had denied on Friday that the SP was divided. But she had said that she "personally misses Amar Singh".
Jaya had also said that she would think about whether to join him in any of his future political venture only after her term is over. Her term in the Upper House of Parliament will come to an end in July.
