Singh's new role as an anti-nuclear plant crusader is sure to raise a few eyebrows and he has joined the protests that are already underway in Fatehabad.
VK Singh joined the dharna and criticised the government's move on acquiring land for the nuclear plant. He spoke at the protest site, "At least 1,500 farmers will be affected if the plant is set up on the land selected by the government. The land is fertile and the government's decision will not only affect the farmers but also the landless labourers that work for them."
Speaking out against nuclear plants, he called them "destructive" and cited the example of the Fukushima nuclear plant.
This is the first time that Singh has made his presence felt in a public campaign post-retirement. He, however, refused to reveal anything on his political ambitions. Commenting on Anna Hazare's anti-corruption campaign, Singh said, "I am against corruption and with people who are fighting against it."
