V K Singh
New Delhi, March 1:Although no formal announcement has been made, General V K Singh and 100 other ex-servicemen are likely to join the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) today. These servicemen include jawans and officers too.

Making his intentions clear, he said,"The country's interest is supreme. And BJP is a party that works for national interest." Speculations were rife when the retired General met the BJP leader and Madhya P
radesh MP Shivraj Singh Chouhan at his residence for a "courtesy visit".

Ironically, in October last year, Singh had announced that he was firmly behind Anna Hazare and supports his cause of fighting corruption. A contrast to his sharing stage with Narendra Modi at a rally in Haryana, which was attended by ex-servicemen.

The General was in news a few days ago as he was the first serving military chief to drag the government to court in order to prove his date of birth. The debate started when the documents he had submitted to the Army stated both years-1951 and 1950.

In a petition at the Supreme Court, he claimed an answer for the rejection of his actual death by the Ministry of Defence. The Supreme Court, however, said it does not agree the Army Chief's decision.
