In a shocking claim, former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh said that party leader Azam Khan has threatened to kill his family. Singh said that Khan threatened an acid-attack on his daughter. Khan, a close associate of Samajwadi Partry chief Akhilesh Yadav, has been a prominent critic of Singh. Singh also spoke about recently senior SP leader Shivpal Yadav, who has been sidelined by his party. He said that Shivpal did not attend a scheduled meeting with top BJP leaders. "I have spoken to top BJP leaders for Shivpal. The time (of meeting) was also fixed but he did not turn up. Now, I have no political responsibility for him. I am not in touch with him," he said. Asked to provide further details, Singh said, "He (Shivpal) lives nearby, you (media) can talk to him." At the time of a split in the party in 2017, Khan had sided with Akhilesh Yadav, while Singh had supported Mulayam Singh Yadav.
