Taking baby steps in the field of politics, Singh will contest the Delhi Assembly elections for the Aam Aam Party (AAP) from the Delhi Cantonment area. A former NSG commando, Singh was a part of the team that had fought the 26/11 terrorists, who had attacked the Taj Hotel in Mumbai.
After serving the army for 14 years, he took the political plunge by joining the AAP. He retired from active service after he suffered loss of hearing following the 26/11 rescue operation.
Singh: Anna Hazare said country needs people like me
Singh says that politics can be done without any experience. "It is only the corrupt people who need experience. When our country got freedom did our leaders have any experience," he says.
Singh, who aims to work for the health and the education sectors is confident of winning the elections. "The whole army votebank and the public has faith in it (army) and will vote for me," he says.
He says that activist Anna Hazare motivated him by saying that the country needed people like him. "I was into social service and used to teach the childrena nd used to movite them to join the army," he added.
