Patna: After remaining in obscurity for the last few years when he was suspended by the Janata Dal – U that led him to join hand with former Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi only to split from him as well in early 2018, former Agriculture Minister of Bihar Narendra Singh, at a press conference in Patna on Saturday, expressed his desire to make a comeback in politics saying he wished to contest the Lok Sabha elections from Banka constituency.

“Though I am not that anxious to fight election, I would like to get a ticket from Banka. But if that seat is not available, I am open to contest from Ara, Karakat, or Vaishali,” the former JD-U and Hindustani Awam Morcha (HAM) leader said at the press conference at Sri Krishna Chetna Parishad office.

Singh, however, failed to clarify which party he hoped to get the ticket from since he was neither with the HAM nor his rather lackadaisical attempt to creep back into the JD-U had been received with enthusiasm by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar or other senior party leaders.

Talking about the rumors of privatization of the Indian Railways, Singh said that everything must be done to oppose the move and if the leaders at the Center were still hell-bent on privatizing the railways, the major trade unions of India will launch an united opposition to the move to thwart the government’s nefarious design.

The former Agriculture Minister further said that the National Mahapurush Smriti Commission will be holding a grand event in the honor of Maharana Pratap and Bhama Shah in Patna on February 16 and the Commission was planning to have former President of India Pranab Mukherjee as its chief guest.
