Coming out in support of his estranged colleague Amar Singh, SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav on Sunday termed his questioning by Delhi Police in the ‘cash-for-vote’ scam as “injustice” and said he would help the Rajya Sabha MP to “sail through” the crisis.
However, the SP chief ruled out Amar Singh’s return to the party, from which he was expelled last year.
“It is an injustice being meted out to Amar Singh. It is a conspiracy to trouble (SP Lok Sabha MP) Rewati Raman Singh and Amar Singh. He (Amar) helped Congress (during the 2008 trust vote) as Samajwadi Party voted in favour of the UPA. And now he is being questioned,” Mr. Yadav told a press conference here.
He said Amar Singh was not involved in bribing of BJP MPs.
“We only helped by voting in their (Congress’) favour. Did we join the government? Did Amar Singh or Rewati Singh become ministers? Had money changed hands, I would have known about it,” a visibly upset Mr. Yadav said.
