New Delhi [India], Oct. 27 (ANI): Samajwadi Party Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh, who kept himself away from the media during infighting in the Mulayam Singh Yadav's clan and was portrayed as a villain by Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, on Thursday broke his silence saying he may not be with CM Akhilesh, but would always be with Mulayam's son Akhilesh.

"I may not be with CM Akhilesh, but I will always be with Mulayam Singh Yadav's son Akhilesh. The father of the SP and the Chief Minister are the same, and God stands as a testimony that whenever I spoke to Netaji, it was in favour of Akhilesh, Netaji also knows this truth," Singh told ANI, while responding to Akhilesh's allegations.

"When I was struggling for life and undergoing a dialysis, Netaji had come to meet me and he said there was a discussion on the issue of state president and when Akhilesh Yadav replaced Shivpal Yadav as the UP SP president, even then I was blamed for it," said Singh.

"When his (Akhilesh's) family was opposing his marriage, I was the only who stood by him, but today I am hurt by his words. There is no photo of his wedding, where this 'dalal' is not there," emotional Singh responded to the allegation of "dalal"

"It is possible to meet Rahul Gandhi, but meeting Akhilesh is difficult. If my 'bali' (sacrifice) can solve the problem, I am ready for it," he added. (ANI)
