Mulayam plays down Amar's resignation from SP posts
Amar Singh on Wednesday resigned as general secretary and other posts in the Samajwadi Party citing "health reasons" amid speculation over deepening differences with party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav. Singh, who is in Dubai, told a news agency over phone that he has resigned as national General Secretary, Spokesman and member of the Samajwadi Party parliamentary board. He faxed his resignation from all the three posts to Yadav, he said. "I have resigned from all the three posts with immediate effect and I have faxed my resignation to Mulayam Singh Yadav," said the 54-year-old high-profile spokesman of the party.
