Terming the arrest of its former leader Amar Singh in 2008 cash-for vote scam as a “whitewash”, the Samajwadi Party today alleged that he had been made a scapegoat in the case by the Delhi Police.

“He has been made a scapegoat. This is nothing but a whitewash by Delhi Police following strictures from the Supreme Court,” SP national spokesman and General Secretary Mohan Singh said here.

He said the Delhi Police should follow the apex court directives and find the source of the money which will be the clinching evidence in the case.

Asked whether the SP would raise the issue in Parliament, Mohan Singh said a decision in this regard would be taken tomorrow.

The party had expelled Mr. Amar Singh in February last year after he had a fall out with its leadership.
