Senior Trinamool Congress leader Subrata Mukherjee on Saturday condoled the death of Rajya Sabha MP and former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh, and said he lost a "great personal friend".

Mukherjee, also a senior West Bengal minister, said that he knew Amar Singh for a long time, since his days in Kolkata as a member of the Chhatra Parishad, students wing of the West Bengal Congress.

We were very close friends, and whenever he used to come to Kolkata, even after becoming a senior leader of the Samajwadi Party, he used to either meet me or call me up. He had a unique ability to make friends across the political spectrum. Today I have lost a great personal friend," Mukherjee said.

Singh, who once wielded immense influence in power circles as a close aide of Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav, died in Singapore where he was undergoing treatment.
