Former union home secretary RK Singh will now join BJP
Former union home secretary RK Singh is set to join the BJP on Friday. Singh, a retired IAS officer (1975 batch) from the Bihar cadre, was earlier tipped to be adviser to the Bihar government. However, he did not accept the assignment.
‘He will formally join the BJP on Friday,’ said a sources close to Singh. He is hoping to fight the Lok Sabha poll next year from a constituency in Bihar. Incidentally, Singh was the district magistrate of Samastipur when senior BJP leader LK Advani was arrested on 23 October, 1990, while his rath yatra was en route to Ayodhya in UP from Somnath in Gujarat. Singh was home secretary from 1 July, 2011 to 30 June, 2012.
