Azam Khan terms Amar Singh’s nomination to Rajya Sabha ‘unfortunate’

New Delhi: Samajwadi Party’s firebrand leader Azam Khan recently was unhappy over the party’s decision to nominate Amar Singh to the Rajya Sabha.

Azam Khan called Singh’s nomination as unfortunate.

While talking to the media, Khan said, “As far as I think, this whole incident (nomination of Amar Singh to Rajya Sabha) is unfortunate. Mulayam Singh is the party chief and to challenge his decision is beyond my rights.”

This comes some time after SP made an announcement of the seven names, including that of Amar Singh for the Rajya Sabha elections. The elections are scheduled for next month.

Others who have been nominated include – Beni Prasad Verma, Sanjay Seth, Sukhram Yadav, Vishambhar Prasad Nishad, Arvind Singh and Revti Raman Singh.

Amar Singh who was part of Samajwadi Party, was expelled from it for six years in 2010. Also, with his expulsion period coming to an end there have been rumors of his return to the party.
