Won't Say No If I Get Opportunity To Join BJP: Amar Singh

Amar Singh said he would criticise PM Narendra Modi if he found any flaw in him.

Indore: 

Highlights

  1. Amar Singh added that he hadn't received any invite from the BJP
  2. Mr Singh took a potshot at rebel JD (U) leader Sharad Yadav as well
  3. Mr Singh also said communalism has become a joke in today's politics
Expelled Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh today said that he was not averse to joining the BJP, but he hadn't got any invite from the party, nor had he applied to it.

"The BJP is a very big political party. I won't say that I will not join the BJP if I get the chance, but who is giving me the chance? I haven't sent them any request letter either," Mr Singh told reporters in Indore.

Mr Singh said he would certainly criticise Prime Minister Narendra Modi if he found any flaw in him. However, who can deny that PM Modi's mother and close relatives "are still living like commoners and go to government hospitals for treatment", Mr Singh said.

"The Congress abstained from the special session of Parliament convened for the launch of Goods and Services Tax only because Modi was going to make the announcement of the new tax regime," he said.

Comments
Mr Singh also took a potshot at rebel JD (U) leader Sharad Yadav's 'Save Composite Culture' campaign, asking whether Mr Yadav didn't notice any communal atmosphere in the country when he was the convener of the NDA during the Atal Bihari Vajpayee-led regime.

Communalism and secularism have become a joke in today's politics, he said.
