Amar Singh hits at Akhilesh; says I am an Indian not 'outsider'
Varanasi: Expelled Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh on Friday gave a befitting reply to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and a few other party leaders by saying that they consider him an outsider but people living in India cannot be called so.
Speaking to media persons after offering prayers at Vishwanath temple here, he took a jibe at SP chief Akhilesh Yadav's 'donkey remark', saying, "People see in others what they actually are."
Hitting out at UP cabinet minister Azam Khan for not considering people of Jammu and Kashmir Indian natives, the Rajya Sabha MP from SP said, "They are an integral part of our country and those mocking at their sufferings should be punished."
It may be mentioned that Azam had once stoked controversy by questioning whether Kashmir is a part of India or not. "It is still controversial and we don’t know whether Kashmir is part of India or not," he had said.
Amar Singh also not spared SP leader Ram Gopal Yadav as he said, "He warned me of dire consequences if I visit Uttar Pradesh ever again," adding, "He should see that I am standing in temple town Varanasi."
On the other hand, Amar Singh praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi by comparing him with Lord Krishna.
It may be mentioned that Singh has hinted of his joining another party after repeatedly being humiliated by Akhilesh Yadav.
"I am available, waiting for a graceful opportunity. If it comes, I will be more than happy to give a thought," he said while replying to a question about his future prospects.
