NEW DELHI: Responding to reinstatement of ousted Ramgopal Yadav as general secretary of Samajwadi Party following an order issued by SP patriarch Mulayam Singh, SP’s Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh on Thursday said this is their party, and thus, they can expel or reinstate anybody anytime at their will, but if Netaji’s trust and affections is with Ramgopal, then I am also with him.

“This is their party, and they can expel or reinstate anybody anytime at their will. If Mulayam Singh’s affection and trust is with Ramgopal, then I am also with Ramgopal,” Singh told ANI. 

He, however, said, “He (Ramgopal) had given a statement that he got Amar Singh expelled from the party, and could do it now too. I am ready to be expelled. I was expelled once and now I am ready to be expelled again. I will be waiting for my expulsion for the second time.” 

Asked if Ramgopal’s inclusion had strengthened the camp of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, he said: “This is for you to analyse. Whether I am in politics or not; I’m with this party or any other party; but I can neither leave nor forget Mulayam Singh. I cannot deprive myself of his affection, whether he is in power or not.” 

“When I met Mulayam Singh, he was not a big leader, but he is only person in the public life who has ability to carry forward relationships. Other people use and throw, but Mulayam Singh never forgets his friends. For his this capability, I hardly care who has won and who lost,” said Singh, adding that as long as he has got affection and trust of Mulayam Singh, he considers himself to be a winner. 

Ramgopal Yadav has been reinstated as party’s spokesperson and as a member of the party's Central Parliamentary Board, announced SP patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav in a press note.

“This was bound to happen. It is because of the blessings of Netaji as he was never against me,” Yadav told ANI here.

“I was always part of the party; I had never left it, though I was ousted technically,” he added.

At the height of the Samajwadi Party family feud, Ram Gopal Yadav was expelled on the instructions of Mulayam Singh on October 23.
