Every time we think that 2020 cannot get worse, it proves us wrong. After losing some of the big stars in Bollywood, the country’s political domain has witnessed a massive jolt as renowned politician Amar Singh breathed his last today after a prolonged illness. He was 64. According to media reports, the Samajwadi Party leader was ill for quite some time now and was getting treated in Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore for several months. He is survived by wife Pankaja and twin daughters.

Mourning his demise, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh penned a heartfelt note on microblogging site. He wrote, “वरिष्ठ नेता एवं सांसद श्री अमर सिंह के निधन के समाचार से दुःख की अनुभूति हुई है। सार्वजनिक जीवन के दौरान उनकी सभी दलों में मित्रता थी। स्वभाव से विनोदी और हमेशा ऊर्जावान रहने वाले अमर सिंहजी को ईश्वर अपने श्रीचरणों में स्थान दें। उनके शोकाकुल परिवार के प्रति मेरी संवेदनाएँ।" For the uninitiated, Amar Singh had suffered a kidney failure in 2013 and had even undergone a kidney transplant back then . While the politician was also declared critical back then, he recovered and returned to his political life in 2016. Earlier, in March this year, Singh had released a video and assured the nation that he would recover and will be back soon.

In fact, hours before his demise, Amar Singh had sent Eid wishes on micro-blogging site Twitter and also paid a tribute to freedom fighter Bal Gangadhar Tilak on his death anniversary.

To note, Amar Singh played a key role in Samajwadi Party’s decision to extend support to Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government in 2008. However, his association with the Samajwadi Party came to an end after he was expelled from the party in 2010 for "anti-party activities".
