Amar Singh Conveys Inability To Attend Fest Via Blog
SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav's efforts to broker peace between sulking Amar Singh and Ram Gopal Yadav on Tuesday received a setback with Singh conveying his inability to attend the party's cultural festival at Saifai by posting an open letter on his personal blog.
Yadav was expected to talk to Amar Singh and Ram Gopal at Saifai where the entire party leadership has gathered for its annual programme.
In the blog Singh said: "since Ram Gopal Yadav described me as mentally sick, after this public humiliation it would not be appropriate for me to attend the Saifai Mahotsav".
"Respected Netaji, I had tried to contact you and (Mulayam's son) Akhilesh over phone. Since we were unable to talk over phone, I was forced to send you this message through my blog," Singh said in the letter titled: "A message for respected Netaji".
He said that he was not mentally but physically ill, which prompted him to "commit the crime of seeking leave. You may punish me in any manner..."
Singh further wrote that going by the recent turn of events, "I get this feeling that if something good happens then that credit goes to somebody else, while if things go wrong, then immediately I am blamed". PTI
