General Singh’s wife to contest from Rae Bareilly

August 10 2013

This column was the first one to break the news that former Army Chief General V K Singh is mulling over the move to contest the Lok Sabha elections on a BJP ticket from the Rae Bareilly constituency against Sonia Gandhi. The general has had several rounds of meetings with Gadkari and Rajnath Singh about it. This Saturday, General Singh’s wife boarded a special flight to Lucknow and then took a helicopter to Rae Bareilly from there. The announced programme for Madam Singh’s presence was that she was to be felicitated by a Kshatriya organisation. But sources reveal that the real reason behind Madam Singh’s visit to Rae Bareilly was to do a recce about the political equation in the constituency. If the Singh family thinks the political tides are favourable to them in the Rae Bareilly constituency, only then will the General contest the elections from there. Otherwise he may demand of the BJP to have his wife contest the elections from there against Sonia.
