KALYAN SINGH’S GIFT OF POWER

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

At 55, Ra­jveer Singh fi­nally got the gift he had been wait­ing for. On March 15, BJP vice-pres­i­dent Kalyan Singh’s son was cel­e­brat­ing his birth­day in his Mar­ris Road home in Aligarh when he saw the news at 11.30 p.m. His fa­ther, 82, had been in Delhi fi­nal­is­ing the list of can­di­dates from Ut­tar Pradesh. Break­ing news said that Ra­jveer would be con­test­ing from Etah. Kalyan Singh con­firmed this to him two hours later. Ra­jveer has been cam­paign­ing for his fa­ther, and also pre­par­ing for the next As­sem­bly elec­tion in 2017 from De­bai con­stituency in Bulandshahr from where he lost the elec­tion in 2012. He can’t be­lieve his luck.
