Hukum Singh, 78, began his political career as a Congress politician, then joined the Lok Dal, returned to the Congress, serving in the Veer Bahadur Singh and Narain Dutt Tewari ministries of the mid 1980s. After he joined the BJP in the early 1990s, he was elected on the party's ticket and appointed a minister in the … [Read more...] about Kairana exodus: Blame it on ‘bhaigiri’, says BJP MP
