Amar Singh's Lok Manch faces rout in UP polls
Posted on: 10:22 PM IST Mar 06, 2012
New Delhi: Rashtriya Lok Manch, the party floated by Amar Singh, one time close confidante of Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, drew a blank in the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections as none of its 360 candidates was able to win any seat.
Singh had fielded 360 candidates across UP of his year-old party and had campaigned hard with Jaya Prada, a former SP Lok Sabha member.
He addressed several meetings where he attacked Yadav and supported the cause of Muslims.
But apparently, it failed to influence voters of UP who gave a thumping majority to SP.
On 6 January 2010, Singh had resigned as general secretary of the party as well as from its parliamentary board and as its spokesperson following sharp differences with Yadav.
