Former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh no more

New Delhi: Former Samajwadi Party leader and Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh has passed away in Singapore.

He was 64 and had been hospitalised for a long time.

Amar Singh’s prominence as a politician had declined over the years ever since he floated his own outfit after leaving the Samajwadi Party. He was once considered SP chief Mulayam Singh’s close confidante.

He had recently tweeted that he won’t ever return to SP.

Amar resigned from all positions in SP on January 6, 2010 and was later expelled from the party. Asianet Online
