No One Is Indispensable For The Party : Mulayam
Samajwadi Party President Mulayam Singh Yadav, who has come under frontal attack from his one time confidante Amar Singh of late, on Saturday in Hardoi, suggested that no one was indispensable for the party.
"Kya Nehru nahin hain to Congress nahin hai, kya main nahin rahoonga to SP nahin rahegi, SP barkarar rahegi (didn't Congress survive without Nehru, wouldn't SP be alive without me, it would)," quipped the SP supremo when asked by reporters here if Amar Singh's illness meant problems for the party.
Advising Singh to look after his health instead of issuing statements, he said "It is my advice to him to take good care of his health....ups and downs are part of politics."
Yadav, who was here to attend a function in the family of a party leader, said although Amar Singh was no longer an office bearer, he was still in the party and asked him not to issue statements under tension.
To a question on Singh's claims that he had some secrets concerning the party with him, Yadav said he was not aware of them.
"If he has some secrets, only he knows when to make them public", Yadav said.
sOn speculation that former party general secretary Azam Khan might be reinstated with some responsibility, Yadav said he has had very close relations with Khan and he would avoid saying anything on him and getting into a problem. PTI
