Jaswant Singh, 76-year-old, is deeply saddened after his eviction from the BJP, who has now filed an independent nomination from Barmar Lok Sabha seat in Rajasthan.

Singh was born in a Rajput family on January 3, 1938 at Jasol village of Barmer district in Rajasthan says, “I am contesting on principle and honour, not just for my honour, but that of all people of Barmer.”

He expressed woe against his expulsion, on this he comments, “Perhaps it was an emotional weakness that I joined the BJP again though all my relatives and friends had sought to dissuade me.”

Being served as a policy maker at Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s rule, Singh played the short-role of finance minister as well as minister for external affairs at Vajpayee’s second term for PM, now as the change in the span of time Jaswant, is formally a political dissident against the same party.

A few years back in 2012, he was also the nominee for the post of vice president for the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) but lost to Hamid Ansari.

This is not the first time that Singh is criticized in the party; earlier he was condemned of accompanying terrorists, who were held responsible for hijacking Indian Airline plane to Kandahar in Afghanistan, later the passengers  were released in exchange of terrorists by the government.

Further, in year 2009, owing to his released book entitled Jinnah: India-Partition-Independence, wherein he praised Pakistan’s founder Mohammad Ali Jinnah and held liable Jawarharlal Nehru for India’s sliding doors.
