Sadhu Singh served at Government Brijindra College, Faridkot from 1971 to 1999 as a Lecturer in English. He was attracted by ideas and policies of the AAP, especially its campaign against corruption and decided to join the party.
The Indian political system is governed by big businesses in collaboration with monarchical landlord chiefs. Mal- administration has violated the entire social system. The real producers of national wealth viz: workers, peasants and commoners are suppressed under high handedness of state machinery. The federal and democratic structure of the Indian Constitution is being shattered. Communal forces with their dictatorial designs are penetrating into the very fibre and fabric of unity in diversity concept of our nation. Under these circumstances an ideology as brought out by AAP would be conducive to revolutionary change if we walk on with our relevant strategic moves.
Sadhu Singh has completed an MA in English.
