Was expelled in 2010:
Amar Singh and his protégé, yesteryear Bollywood actress Jaya Prada were expelled from the Samajwadi Party (SP) in February 2010 for alleged ‘anti-party’ activities. Both have already completed their six year ouster from the SP.
Amar, later, floated his own political party Rashtriya Lok Manch in 2011 and fielded candidates on 360 out of 403 seats in 2012 Vidhan Sabha polls of Uttar Pradesh, but he could not win even a single seat.
Amar even contested the general elections in 2014 from Fatehpur Sikri seat on Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) ticket in which he subsequently lost.
