People's faith keeps me going: Prem Singh

National,Politics, Tue, 09 Dec 2008 IANS

New Delhi, Dec 9 (IANS) Choudhary Prem Singh, speaker of the outgoing Delhi assembly, says it is 'people's faith' in his leadership that has helped him never lose an election in the last 50 years.


The veteran Congress leader who has made it to the record books by winning all elections from the Ambedkar Nagar constituency in south Delhi since 1958, gives the credit for his latest victory to people.



In 1958 and 1962, he was elected to the municipal corporation; in 1967, 1972, 1977 and 1983 to the metropolitan council; and in 1993, 1998, 2003 and now in 2008 to the Delhi assembly.



'It is the belief of voters in my leadership that has made me win all elections,' Singh told IANS Tuesday.



Singh, 76, defeated Suresh Pahlwan of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) by over 5,000 votes in the assembly elections, whose results were announced Monday.



Singh said that after the delimitation exercise several wards have been added to his constituency and his focus will be to develop these areas. Another important project Singh is looking forward to is getting Metro connectivity in his constituency.



'The work is already on the Central Secretariat-Mehrauli Metro link. I want this line to be stretched to Ambedkar Nagar,' Singh added.



His son Choudhary Pramod Singh is municipal councillor from Madangir in south Delhi.
