Amar Singh and Jaya Bhaduri Bachchan are at War. Amar Singh hits out at her. So what is the Problem Between Jaya and Amar and what are they fighting for. Is the friendship over or is it just a misunderstanding?
Jaya, the wife of Amar Singh’s ‘family friend’ and ‘brother’ superstar Amitabh Bachchan, earlier remarked that Singh “should have suffered a little” and stayed on in the party. His absence was felt, she said.
Expelled Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Amar Singh, in a rally in New Delhi, has lashed out in response and said that he too felt her absence by his side, having expected her to stand by him. According to a television channel, he has also asked why Amitabh didn’t choose to do the same when he decided to quit the Congress over Bofors allegations 25 years ago.
Amar Singh on Sunday took a dig at actress Jaya Bachchan, saying he too misses her as she did not support him when he was expelled from the party.
"Jaya bhabhi (sister-in-law) said she is in SP and Amar Singh brought her to the party. She said that his politics was my politics. Now, he is not there, I miss him very much," Amar Singh said here.
"Listen, Jayaji, I don't know where you are. I want to tell you that your brother-in-law was insulted. SP general secretary Mohan Singh said that Jaya Bachchan is just a showpiece and all film actors are just actors," he said.
"I want to tell you that Manoj Tiwari and Jaya Prada are with me. So I want to tell you that I am also missing you very much," Singh said, alluding to the fact that the two actors, who were part of the SP, came out in support of him. Both were expelled from the party for supporting Amar Singh.
Amar Singh was apparently hitting out at the actor-turned-politician as she on Friday denied that the SP was divided. But she had said that she "personally misses Amar Singh".
Jaya had also said she would think about whether to join him in any of his future political venture only after her term is over. Her term in the upper house of parliament will come to an end in July.
She defended party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav's controversial remarks on the women's reservation bill, saying he wanted a debate on the issue.
The SP chief last week said that the 33 percent reservation in parliament and state assemblies would lead to election of only women from elitist background, "at whom youth would whistle".
Amar Singh, who called superstar Amitabh Bachchan his elder brother and was seen together with the Bachchan family at all events, including family get-togethers and award functions, resigned from all posts of the party citing poor health in January. In his blog and interviews to media, however, he said the party did not treat him well.
He and Jaya Prada were expelled for "anti-party activities" a month later. It was speculated that Jaya Bachchan, whom he addresses as his sister-in-law, would also leave the party, but she did not.
Looks like the Bachchans, already reacting to son Abhishek’s posters being blacked out during the Earth Hour promotions in the Capital, have a new controversy on their hands in the form of a Figt with Amar Singh.
