While talking to the daily, Sangram said, "although I came here to meet my parents, but since elections are round the corner in my state, it is my responsibility to aware people to vote for right people".

On being asked whether he is particularly campaigning for any party or any candidate, Sangram Singh clearly said, "No, I have nothing to do with politics. Being from Haryana, I thought it is my duty to spread awareness among people about right and wrong.

"Some political parties were even ready to offer me Rs 70 lakh for campaigning, but I refused", he said.

He also said that he interacted with young voters in Rohtak, Maham and Jind, ahead of forthcoming polls.

He also thanked people of Haryana for the love and support he has received from them.

To woo youth voters in the state, Haryana's main opposition Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) has roped in rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh for the upcoming assembly elections.

On Honey Singh campaigning for INLD, Sangram Singh was quoted as saying, "I don't know if songs add impetus to a party's image. But I think what really captures people's hearts is honesty and the willingness to serve for their betterment."
