Rajya Sabha member, former SP leader Amar Singh passes away at 64

New Delhi, Aug 1 (IANS): Rajya Sabha member, former Samajwadi Party leader and famed power broker during the UPA era, Amar Singh, 64, lost his battle with kidney ailment on Saturday. He passed away in a Singapore hospital where he was undergoing treatment for kidney ailments.

From Vice-President M. Venkaiah Naidu to Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan condolences poured in as the news broke.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said Singh was friendly with all political parties. He remembered him as "humorous and always energetic".

"Amar Singh, MP and a person I have known for long, died today. Although he was mostly with the SP, but he made friends across the spectrum of political parties. My condolences to his family," said BJP Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy.

Singh was expelled from the Samajwadi Party in 2017 after rift between Akhilesh Yadav and Mulayam Singh, his father, started to widen. But that was not the first time that he had been expelled from the party.

Singh underwent a successful second kidney transplant. But the abdominal infection couldn't be reversed, according to news reports.

    RIP Amar Singh....

    India's number one 'Political Dalaal' no more....From making Deve Gowda PM to making Jaya Prada and Jaya Bachhan RS MPs his hidden hand was everywhere....He was smart enough to get then BJP MPs votes to CONgress in LS for Nuclear deal with US ( Ask Manorama and Sangliyana why they voted to CONgress while being BJP LS MPs !!!)....

    Acting as bridge between Film Industry and Politicians....His midnight calls to Hindi film actresses is interesting to watch....perhaps leaked by himself to show his prowess...

    End of a Colorful politician.....nobody can match him for sure....

    You forgot that famous call to Sonia Madam which she did not recieve and you all know what happened...
    Do you forget who resurrected the great Big B??
    Dabbling with the I think Sukhram of Himachal Futuristics which doused the ' kitchen fire' of many a families?
    Yes his tell all calls to Jayaprada, closeness to Bipasha...
    He has lived a full... colorful life and I think has left with no regrets...
    The ones regretting should be the recipient of his freebies.
    ಕಾಲಾಯ ತಸ್ಮೈ ನಮಃ...
