Former BSP MLA seeks entry to SP
KANPUR: With Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati having closed all the doors for the return of expelled MLA K P Singh to the party fold, the ousted member was now looking for possible political pastures with the Samajwadi Party. Sources claimed that the ousted BSP MLA had already met party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and his formal induction into the party might be announced very shortly.
K P Singh was expelled from the party by Mayawati following a plethora of complaints against him by local leaders. The main charge against Singh was that he had helped the Bhartiya Janata Party candidate Shyam Behari Mishra in last the Lok Sabha elections in Billhaur parliamentary constituency. Besides, he was also charged with many other anti-party activities.
The expulsion orders were served on Singh last week and came as a great shock to him as he had already launched his election campaign in his Chaubeypur constituency. Party sources said that Singh had not never expected his expulsion from the party as Mayawati had never demanded any explanation from him on the charges levelled against him.
The ousted MLA had been trying to meet Mayawati and Kanshiram for the last one week but the duo refused to see him. Insiders said that Mayawati had finally discarded Singh and there was no possibility of his return to the party. Sensing the mood of the two leaders, Singh had warned the duo that he would expose them in public. Meanwhile, he was trying to make an entry into the Samajwadi Party.
