NEW DELHI: Amid debate on the former President Pranab Mukherjee's address at the RSS headquarters in Nagpur on Thursday, expelled Samajwadi Party Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh while supporting the RSS said that the organisation never believed in opportunistic politics and all political parties should learn lesson from it.

Mr Singh uploaded a video on Twitter on Friday.

In this half-minute video, Mr Singh has expressed his opinion about his relationship with the SP and the RSS.

 

"Dedicated my entire life for Samajwadi Party and Mulayam Singh Yadav and when the party celebrated 25 years, Mulayam Singh Yadav himself told me your contribution to the party is tremendous but your presence in party will be annoying for Akhilesh.

You give your best wishes through a letter and with heavy heart I advice you not to come to the function at Lucknow, despite being party's general secretary and member of parliamentary board," Mr Singh said.

"In just few days, I have found that the RSS is being defamed.

Top functionaries of the RSS have given me respect.

I was called and honoured as chief guest, and other political parties should learn lesson from it," Mr Singh wrote.
