Advani, a senior figure in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), while Advani’s Ram Rath Yatra was en route to Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh from Somnath in Gujarat. The arrest was made by order of the Lalu Prasad Yadav government.

There was speculation that Singh would contest from the Bihar constituencies of either Arrah or Supaul in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, though Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh objected to him contesting from Supaul. On 13 December 2013, Singh joined the BJP.He contested the election as a BJP candidate in Arrah, beating his nearest rival by a margin of over 135000 votes.

Before his appointment as Union home Secretary, Union Defence Minister A. K. Antony had picked Singh to head the department of defence production in 2009 in view of his clean reputation.

Singh was chosen by the then Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram for his efficiency and no-nonsense attitude. Known to be a tough taskmaster, Chidambaram got along well with Singh at a professional level. However, Singh had several run-ins with Chidambaram’s successor, Sushilkumar Shinde, who was not happy with the home secretary’s handling of the situation following the 16 December 2012 Delhi gang rape.

R.K. Singh after retirement also revealed Shinde’s involvement in the IPL Spotfixing case and how Shinde had interfered in that investigation.Shinde also met the accused Shahid Balwa at his North Block office even after R.K. Singh’s statements regarding Shinde’s involvement in the IPL Spotfixing case

Italian Marines case-Singh also accused the UPA government of making an exception for the marines since they were Italians.

Satyapal Singh

Satyapal Singh (born 29 November 1955) is the former Police Commissioner of Mumbai and Member of Parliament (MP) of the Bharatiya Janata Party from Baghpat in Uttar Pradesh for the 16th Lok Sabha. Singh was born on November 29, 1955, in Basauli in Baghpat district of Uttar Pradesh. He is a post-graduate in chemistry from Digambar Jain College, Baraut and has also done M Phil in Chemistry from Delhi University. He has secured an MBA from Australia and also has a MA in Public Administration and Ph.D. in Naxalism from Nagpur University. Before joining the I.P.S, Singh wanted to become a scientist.

Singh joined the BJP at a rally organised in Meerut on 2 February 2014 in the presence BJP’s PM candidate Narendra Modi, party chief Rajnath Singh and UP in-charge Amit Shah.

He was pitted against Civil Aviation Minister and Rashtriya Lok Dal supremo Ajit Singh from Baghpat (Lok Sabha constituency) where he won with a thumping margin of 2,09,866 votes, defeating Samajwadi Party’s Ghulam Mohammed and pushing Ajit Singh to the third spot with only 1,99,516 votes. The Baghpat Lok Sabha constituency seat was the first to be declared in favour of the BJP led NDA on the day of the results. Ajit Singh, the 75 year old Jat leader suffered a massive defeat as he had never lost an election from Baghpat since 1999. In fact he had been representing Baghpat in the Lok Sabha since 1989, only losing to Sompal Shastri in the 1998 elections before being voted back in the 1999 elections. Prior to him, his father Chaudhary Charan Singh, the former Prime Minister of India represented Baghpat in the Lok Sabha from 1977 till his death.

Singh’s election campaign was uniquely supported by national and international-level shooters from the constituency which claims to have produced the highest number of national-level shooters in the country in the last 15 years thanks to a shooting club in Johri village, which Singh was instrumental in setting up in 1998. A patron of the club, Singh would often donate a month’s salary to organise an annual tournament in the hope that drawing the youth to sports would prevent them from going astray and help in their job prospects as well. The club claims to have given over 400 shooters to the country. At least 80 of them have got jobs in the Army, ITBP, CISF, Punjab Police, IAF and Railways.

PM candidate Narendra Modi and bollywood actor Sunny Deol also campaigned for him.

On the day of the voting, Singh was attacked and manhandled by unidentified men at a polling station in Malakpur near Baraut where he had gone to check allegations of bogus voting.

In the Parliament, Singh has been vocal about farmers issues, advocating the need to involve the farming community actively in drafting of the Union Budget. He has also been raising the problems faced by sugarcane farmers in western UP who are debt ridden in the face of non repayment of their heightening dues by sugar mills. He has actively been campaigning for Government regulation of sugar prices.Speaking about the need of greater involvement of farmers in the decision making process at a seminar organised by the Council for Social Development, he said,

“About 65 per cent of our population is still dependent on agriculture. Agrarian community is most distressed and neglected even today. We are never bothered about them. Farmers are never consulted before drafting the budget. There has been no farmers’ representation either in Planning Commission or in Commission for Agricultural Costs and Prices (CACP) so far. Without involvement and participation of farmers, we have been designing policies for farmers. The policies are all bureaucratic driven. The existing policies, so far, have not been able to improve farm income and encourage youth to take it up as a profession.”

On 2 June 2014, a prostitution racket was busted by Mumbai police being run from a flat owned by Satyapal Singh but leased out to a well known business house. He said it was leased out to a real estate firm Indiabulls for last 33 months and stated his plans to sue them for maligning his image.

on 7 August 2014, Singh was named as a member of a special expert committee to review security of the Parliament House complex which was targeted by terrorists in 2001. The committee constituted by Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan had former Union Home Secretary R. K. Singh as its head and also included former Rajasthan DGP Harish Meena besides Singh.

On 29 November 2014, under the Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana, he adopted Palri village in his constituency Baghpat in Uttar Pradesh.

Recently, on 11 December 2014, he was appointed as the Vice President of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s Uttar Pradesh (UP) Working Committee.
