Amar Singh now asks for action on 44 complaints

March 17, 2006 19:40 IST

Stung by the disqualification of Jaya Bachchan as its Rajya Sabha member on grounds that she held a office of profit, Samajwadi Partyon Fridaydemanded a 'non-partisan" action from President A P J Abdul Kalam on 44 similar complaints.

"I believe that there are 44 similar complaints against highly respected people in important positions at the national level," Amar Singh, SP general secretarysaid. "I believe that the Presidentwill take a decision on them in a non-partisan manner."

Responding to Samajwadi Party allegations of a 'Congress conspiracy' behind disqualification of Bachchan's membership as 'vague' and 'politically motivated', senior Congress leader Motilal Vora said law was taking its own course in the matter.

"I think the administration of the Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh is well-known to everybody now. And as far as the party'sremarksare concerned, let them see their own face in the mirror," he said, when asked about the allegations of Congress' attempts to malign SP ahead of assembly polls in the state.

"All these allegationsare totally false and politically motivated," Vora told a television channel.

Reacting toBachchan's expulsion, suspended SP leader Raj Babbar said, "The bankrupt leaders of SP have insulted such a great artiste like Jaya Bachchan. The responsibility for thiscompletely lies with the Samajwadi Party."
