Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Former notorious dacoit Malkhan Singh, previously known as a 'Baghi' in the Chambal region, is actively engaging in village visits to garner support for the Congress party.
Having transitioned from a teenage dacoit, Singh surrendered in 1982 and has been striving for a political presence ever since. He has a history of affiliations with the BJP and SP in the past. Now, he's turning his focus to support the Congress in his political endeavors.
Singh, who faced a staggering 94 police cases, including 17 murder charges, recently joined the Congress party in Bhopal, officially taking membership in the presence of state president Kamal Nath.
Singh, known for his earlier campaign support for the BJP, is now actively involved in rallying support for the Congress, in order to mark an interesting transition from his criminal past to political participation.
Malkhan Singh earlier expressed his disappointment with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), stating that he had initially believed it to be a principled party, but it turned out to be an illusion. "The BJP is not what I thought. I despise that party. We must strive to change the BJP government," Singh remarked to reporters.
