Former Army Chief Gen VK Singh, who was engaged in a long-drawn battle with the Government over his age issue, will join the BJP on Saturday.
The decision comes months after he shared dais with BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi at an ex-servicemen rally in Rewari in Haryana.
However, he had refused to confirm his plans to join the BJP stating that he was busy assisting social activist Anna Hazare in his movement.
It is, however, not yet clear whether BJP would field him in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
Singh's tenure as the Army Chief was marked by a controversy over his age. He became the first serving chief to drag the government to the court over his age issue which was decided in favour of the government by the Supreme Court.
The dispute over his age arose because he had two sets of date of birth -- May 10,1950 and May 10,1951 -- in his official records.
Government had recognised 1950 as his official date while he was insisting that it should be 1951, which would give him 10 months more in service.
Soon after retirement, Gen Singh had adopted an anti-government stance and blamed the bureaucracy and the Prime Minister's Office for creating troubles for him during his tenure.
now comes the time to encash the fee for lifelong service to rss.
for greed one is ready to undermine even thedignity of position of ex-army chief.
When someone says something that our resident Jihadi likes, he/she is speaking the truth. When he doesn't like something, it is a lie or Sanghi propaganda.
He should stick to the world he currently inhabits. The day he comes out of it and faces reality, he will be shattered and go insane (if he hasn't already).
No surprise! But Vajpayee's niece Karuna Shukla leaves the BJP and joins Congress. She said Modi "did not fulfill the duty of a husband or rajdharma when he was chief minister. If such a person talks about discharging rashtradharma, I will call it plain dishonesty". She speaks the truth!
Now will V K Singh get the NDA to implement the One Rank One Pension.
