Indira -Shiekh accord.Thakur Randhir Singh comes from Pal dynasty and is direct descendent of valiant General Tehal Singh, highly decorated General in the Army of Maharaja Ranjit Singh of Lahore who sacrificed his life while fighting against British troops at Budki near Lahore and was awarded bravery award with 73 villages in Shahpur Kandi near Pathankot and in a last historical battle between British troops and General's sons took place at Dale ki Dhar where 25 British troops were killed and subsequently the Britishers took away all the lands of General and allotted to Phinu Kotwal a family traitor and made him Rai Bahadur of village Trehari and the family left Mattikot and settled in village Ghati Tehsil and District Kathua and pledged not to make any house and Mr Singh is maintaining that tradition and doesn't have any house in this country and living in a rented flat at 298 EP flats at Wazarat road without any security. I am told to vacate the flat to cover up the mismanagement on the fact of the govt Departments. The flats which belonged to Estates wing of the govt were ostensibly transferred to Custodian Department. Since the reasons are not evident But it is indeed very queer and strange that out of 18 occupants of flats, surreptitiously the dubious and mysterious process was employed to do the technical hara-kiri of dehiring from the Estates Department to the blu-eyed persons and spending lot of money on their renovation and adding the accommodation and allotting the same in favour of some allottes by the Evacuee Department for long lease.It is a big scam and needs to be investigated.
Mr Singh looked after most of the important portfolios like Excise ,Taxation, Transport , Tourism , Ladakh affairs, Parliamentary affairs , Geology and Mining , Relief and Rehabilitation was responsible for electrification and second exit to Mata Vaishno devi in 70's as Minister Tourism he said he was blessed by Mata Vaisno Devi on his maiden visit and announced the electrification of Holy cave from Katra and could divert Rs 70 lakhs from Tourism deparment for the electrification of the 14 Km route in 9 months from Katra to the holy cave in the interest of religious tourism and also responsible for railway track from Udhampur to Baramulla as a special project got sanctioned from than Prime minister P V Narsimha Rao.
Mr Singh who is crusader against corruption and never invited National President NCP Sharad pawar to Jammu and Kashmir who supported the Congress in Lok Sabha elections and always spoke against Armed forces Special power act (AFSPA) and abrogation of Article 370 and also supporting Pakistan which was totally exposed and credit goes to Prime minister Narendra Modi and its team specially Defence Minister Rajnath Singh .Mr Singh categorically said I always worked need based and not greed based in the NCP.Mr Singh always spoke against corruption inside and outside the party and always demanding strict action against Ex Chief ministers , Ministers MLA's and Bureocrates who have misused the funds allotted to J&K and made palatial buildings in inside and outside the country . Mr Singh agreed with Union Home minister Amit Shah that the all money which was send to Jammu and Kashmir if it would properly used all roofs of every Kashmiri have been gold plated but the money has gone to three families, unqualified buerocrates and their henchmen because of Article 370 and 35 A . Mr Singh demanded strict action against all those who have utilized these funds for them and for their henchmen and bureaucrats.
