New Delhi, Dec. 13: Former Home Secretary R.K Singh on Friday joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and said that BJP had the strength to free the country from corruption.
“Other parties go against the national interest just to fill their vote banks but the BJP does not. The BJP wants to change the current corrupt nature of the Government. This party has the strength to free the nation from corruption that is why I have joined this party,” said Singh
“BJP is the only party that never compromises on the national interest. They never have any political motive in mind. They keep the national interest first and foremost. That is why I am the most comfortable in this party,” he said.
“There are two kinds of people, one who criticize and make fun of people from behind and others who step out and do something to change the situation and I come in the latter category,’ he added.
It was reported late on Thursday evening on a television channel that a formal announcement of Singh joining the BJP would be made at 4.30 p.m. on Friday.
Singh, a retired Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer of the Bihar cadre (1975 batch) was the Union Home Secretary from July 1, 2011 till June 30, 2013. He succeeded G.K. Pillai and has since been succeeded by Anil Goswami. (ANI)
