Amar knocking SP’s door

ram gopal opposes the move

bric-1AMAR Singh, the maverick businessman, never realised how difficult it would be to re-enter the personal fiefdom of Mulayam Singh Yadav’s Samajwadi Party. He landed in Lucknow one evening to attend an iftar party organised by Mulayam. The self-proclaimed Muslim leader, Azam Khan, came to know of this and so avoided attending the party. Not only did he distance himself from Mulayam’s party, Azam organised another iftar party at his residence to which Mulayam wasn’t invited. Mulayam wants the return of funds organiser Amar but the paradox is that his party and family have many wheels within wheels. Ram Gopal Yadav is the mentor of Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav. Azam looks after the interests of Ram Gopal in Lucknow while he manages Delhi for Mulayam. Mulayam’s other brother, Shivpal, has his own coterie which wants Amar’s re-entry. The buck stops only at two questions: what will be Amar’s contribution to the Samajwadi Party? Or is he just entering the party to grab a Rajya Sabha seat?
