Rampur, May 8 (ANI): In the latest episode of the Amar Singh- Azam Khan spat, Amar Singh has given an ultimatum to Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav that he will quit the party after the elections if nothing is done to rein in Khan.

Accusing the Muslim leader of making “intolerable utterances” against him, Singh said he would decide over continuing in the party after the polls.

Referring to Yadav’s statement, “If you want to remain in the party, you will have to keep Azam Khan happy,” Singh alleged that Khan was Mulayam’s favorite.

“Azam Khan is a favourite of Mulayam Singhji and in spite of his intolerable utterances against me, I was being asked to keep silent,” Singh said addressing a public meeting in Rampur, 250 km from Lucknow.

Singh said he was expecting a shoe as a “gift” from his estranged party colleague Azam Khan, claiming he must have readied one by now.

“I am waiting for a shoe from Mr Azam Khan. I sincerely invite him to come forward and hand me over the shoe which he is supposed to have readied by now,” Singh said, who had come here to address a rally in support of party candidate Jayaprada.

“I am impatiently waiting for the moment when Mr Khan will implement his plan out of proportion to insult me. If a shoe comes from Khan, I would first decorate this precious gift and then place it in a museum,” he added.

Meanwhile, in a television interview, Mulayam Singh Yadav has said that Khan’s recent utterances against Amar Singh are unacceptable and will be dealt with in the party. (ANI)
