Kolkata: As the feud in the Samajwadi Party degenerated into mudslinging, senior party leader Amar Singh on Monday said sometimes silence was the best strategic answer to all questions and allegations brought against him.
Giving his "best wishes" to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, Singh, once a right hand man of SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav, told PTI "I won't comment on the matter.
For me, at times silence is the best strategic answer to all questions and allegations raised against me".
When asked about his reactions to Akhilesh pointing fingers at him, Singh said "I give my best wishes to Akhilesh Yadav. I have wished him on his birthday. He is the son of my supreme leader, my best wishes are with him."
Later at another function, Singh thanked SP supremo and UP Samajwadi Party president Shivpal Yadav for standing beside him.
"I thank Mulayam Singh Yadav and Shivpal Yadav for standing beside me," he said....
