SP Spokesperson Calls Amar Singh Shameless

Newly appointed Samajwadi Party spokesperson Mohan Singh on Thursday  fired another salvo at sulking Amar Singh who refused to resign from his Rajya Sabha seat, saying his main aim is "remain on some post" and not politics. 

"He (Amar Singh) has been teaching everybody a lesson on morality but after his refusal to quit it has now become clear who is moral and who is not. I think it is his cleverness. Besharmi ki bhi koi seema hoti hai (there is a limit to shamelessness).

"His political aim is to remain on some post through some party and he has stuck to this motive of his. Politics is not his real motive," Mohan Singh said in New Delhi. 

On Amar Singh's statement that seeking his resignation was Mohan Singh's personal comment and not the party's view, the spokesman said, "It pains me to say that when Amar Singh was party spokesman, whatever he said, he used to present it as the party's point of view. "Now, when I am the spokesperson, whatever I say should be considered as the party's view."

Both Mohan Singh and Amar Singh are engaged in a war of words for sometime. Shortly after his appointment as party spokesperson and general secretary, Mohan Singh had sought Amar Singh's resignation as the party's Rajya Sabha member on moral grounds. 

However, Amar Singh had refused to do so, saying that he had resigned from key party posts due to poor health and will not leave the party. PTI
