“We have good intentions for our people and country. When Bharat Ratna has been given, we are very happy. It is not limited to our family or party. It is an honour for every farmer, youth, poor,” Singh said at the sidelines of an event to mark the birth anniversary of his father, Ajit Singh.
Asked when he would announce his alliance with the BJP, he evaded a direct reply and said, “Today is a momentous occasion; we are celebrating.”
“Dil Jeet Liya” (You have won our hearts),” Singh had posted on X after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the Bharat Ratna for Charan Singh.
Singh also slammed critics for saying it was part of a deal to switch towards the NDA, saying such remarks belittle the former prime minister’s legacy.
