Lucknow, April 1: Terming Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s resignation from the Lok Sabha a ?gimmick’, Samajwadi Party national general secretary Amar Singh on Saturday said Gandhi has been trapped in the net she made to enmesh others.

The shot fired by Sonia Gandhi struck herself,” Singh said, after launching a joint project of the state government and Microsoft for speeding up IT education in the state.

On views that Gandhi’s resignation was a ?sacrifice’, the SP leader said if it was so, she should contest from a seat other than Rae Bareli.

I was the first person to offer resignation on this issue but no one (media) termed it sacrifice,” Singh said.
