Amar praises Maya, says she has proved herself
GETTING CLOSER: Amar Singh says source of all tensions between him and
Mayawati is now over.
Former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh has come out in support of
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati praising his one time arch-rival
and slamming his former mentor Mulayam Singh Yadav.
In an exclusive interview to CNN-IBN Amar Singh said that the source
of all tensions between him and Mayawati is now over.
CNN-IBN: Between Mulayam Singh and Mayawati who is your bigger enemy?
Amar Singh: Maya thought Amar Singh is her political adversary because
of my close association with Mulayam Singhji and I very closely
shielded him in her endeavour to harm him. The moment I cease to play
that shield it will be the litmus test for the Mohan Singhs and Ram
Gopals of the world and their ability to prove themselves now.
CNN-IBN: Is Amar Singh closer to Mayawati now?
Amar Singh: I have not met her.
CNN-IBN: Would you say your opinions about her have changed?
Amar Singh: No, not at all. Only now I can sense her pain of guest
house episode. Because Mayawati was also supporting Mulayam Singhji
and as long as she was supporting all her wishes were fulfilled. But
when she decided to withdraw support and Mulayam Singh lost power,
Mulayam Singh and the Yadav clan surrounded her in the guest house and
ill treated her,
CNN-IBN: That was the worst moment in Indian politics. Who do you
think was responsible for that?
Amar Singh: Now I am being treated the same way. For 14 years, as long
as I was servile, obedient and blindfolded and endorsed everything
that was being done in the party and endorsing everything that was
done by my leader, I was all right. I am not a man without
alternative. That was the one mistake my party made that where will he
go? As a spokesperson we have misused him very badly, he has fiercely
opposed Congress so Congress will not accept him. Where will he go. He
has fought with Advani (LK Advani) so BJP will not take him and the
recent past he has fought with Mayawati and so Maya will not take him.
Ghar ka kutta jayega kahan? ghum phir ke aayega yahan (Where can a
domestic dog go. He will have to return).
CNN-IBN: In future do you see yourself closer to Sonia Gandhi or Mayawati?
Amar Singh: Both are political personalities in their own right. One
lady has proved herself in UP against all odds, and one lady has
proved herself in India against all adversity.
