Never wanted to join Mulayam’s party, Kalyan snaps back

Lucknow, Nov 15 ( A day after being openly snubbed by Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, rebel Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Kalyan Singh said he had no intention of joining the party.

“Neither did I ever accept Mulayam Singh’s offer to join his party, nor will I ever do so for all times to come,” he told media persons here.

Sending feelers to the BJP, which he left twice, he expressed his support for the Ram temple at Ayodhya and said no other party than the BJP could ensure the construction of the temple. He also noted he was still a member of the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS).

Virtually disowning Kalyan Singh, Mulayam Singh Saturday said: “Kalyan Singh was never a part of the Samajwadi Party, nor is he one today and let me also tell you that he will never be allowed to join our party.”
