Jaya Prada Too Has Become History For SP: Kushwaha
In the wake of Samajwadi Party MP Jaya Prada defending dissident leader Amar Singh, party general secretary Ram Asresy Kushwaha on Sunday said that like Singh, Jaya Prada too has become history for the SP. "On January 27, I had said that Amar Singh had become history for the SP, now Jaya Prada too has joined him," Kushwaha said, while commenting on the MP's statement defending Singh and asking the party leadership to prevent him from being maligned by his "opponents".
Terming such a statement as gross indiscipline, the SP leader said "Till now we were hearing Amar's statement, now Jaya Prada has joined the chorus," he said, adding that there was no point in wasting time on these issues.
The SP general secretary said he would suggest action against leaders indulging in indiscipline to the party high command. "Any decision will be taken by the party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav," he added. Kushwaha said that it was Mulayam's ideology that the party should not dwell in the past but look forward. "We do not believe in dragging on an issue, instead we add a page in the history book and forget it," he said.
Kushwaha claimed that no SP leader was supporting Amar Singh. "Nobody is supporting him," he said, claiming that even Singh was full of repentance.
"Netaji (Mulayam) made him what he is today. Now Amar Singh is full of repentance as he will not get the honour back again," the SP general secretary said. "Now Amar will tell what crime he committed in his 'shayari'," he added.
Kushwaha claimed that leaders and workers of various political parties were making a beeline to join the SP. "SP will emerge as number one party in the forthcoming state assembly elections," he said. Another newly appointed general secretary Vishambhar Prasad Nishad said that by appointing him and Kushwaha, Yadav had given a clear message that even grassroot workers can reach the top post in the party.
