Mulayam made me political prostitute, says Amar

Lucknow, Sept 20: Amar Singh is an unhappy man. 

Recently, Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh accused Samajwadi Party (SP) patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav for treating him like a "political prostitute". Once seen as a close aide of the SP founder, Amar said on Tuesday that he sees no future with Mulayam.

Asked about his equation with Mulayam by reporters, Amar said, "Netaji wanted me to enter his house from the back door, after dark, and leave before dawn, so that Azam Khan and Akhilesh could not see me."

According to a report in "Times of India", Saying this was not how two respectable people met, Amar said, "Aise toh veshya ko bulaya jaata hai... Aise to veshya aati-jaati hain. Aur main rajnitik veshya nahin banna chahta (this is the way to call home prostitutes. Prostitutes visit homes like this.And I do not wish to become a political prostitute.") Expelled from SP in 2016 by party president Akhilesh Yadav for trying to topple him from CM's post, Amar said he was happy with where he is now.

Accusing Mulayam of leaving him in the lurch during his troubles, Amar said the SP founder had twice ditched him: the first time when he was expelled in 2010, and the second time when he was told to leave the party just before the 2016 UP assembly elections.
