Milkha’s wife, daughter join AAP, but he says no to politics

Legendary athlete Milkha Singh’s wife Nirmal Kaur and their US-based daughter have joined the AAP, but the ‘Flying Sikh’ himself wants to stay away from politics. Nirmal Kaur, also a yesteryears sportsperson, and her daughter Mona Singh have filled the membership form of Arvind Kejriwal’s party and Milka Singh says he respects their decision.

‘Yes, they joined the AAP. They filled the form. Both have said that they were impressed with the aims and objectives of the party and with Arvind Kejriwal’s work,’ Milkha said.

When asked if he too was contemplating joining AAP or any other party, Milkha, who represented the country in three Olympics and won four gold medals in the Asian Games in 1958 and 1962, said if he had wanted, he could have entered politics long back when Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi were the prime minister.

‘I could have joined politics during Nehru’s or Indira Gandhi’s time. I don’t want to (enter politics). I stay away from these things,’ he said.
