Nation more important than politics, says Kripashankar Singh
| Thursday | 12th September, 2019
In 1977, Kripashankar Singh, who had arrived in the city from his native Jaunpur in Uttar Pradesh, organised a rasta roko at the Kherwadi junction after the erstwhile Janata Party government arrested former premier Indira Gandhi.
This marked the entry of Singh, then in his late 20s, and a first-generation migrant to Mumbai, into politics.
The nation is more important than politics… when it comes to nationalism and patriotism, people are willing to keep all existential issues aside to support the country" said Singh, while speaking to DNA.
Singh admitted he was miffed at the internal politics in the city unit of the Congress.
Singh was said to be at loggerheads with a faction led by former Mumbai chief Sanjay Nirupam.
