Lucknow, Dec 24: Samajwadi Party (SP) General Secretary Amar Singh on Saturday said the decision on an electoral understanding between his party and the Congress for the 2017 assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh will be decided by the SP top brass. “I am a small party worker; such decisions are taken by senior leaders like party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav,” Amar Singh told reporters after a meeting with SP’s state unit chief Shivpal Singh Yadav here.
Amar Singh, a Rajya Sabha member, is a member of the party’s Parliamentary Board. As for his meeting with Congress leaders Ghulam bi Azad and Ahmed Patel in Delhi, Singh said no politics should be read into the meeting since the event was held to commemorate late Prime Minister Chowdhary Charan Singh and he attended it on Mulayam’s instructions.
