Singh, who is currently in the US accompanying anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare, said that he is working towards putting up a people's candidate in the next Lok Sabha elections.
    
He dismissed the media reports in a statement given to a news agency by his spokesperson, describing them as ‘wrong and malicious’.

Political parties are against the basic spirit of the constitution, he said. He also refuted claims that he has discussed the plans to contest with top BJP leaders.
    
The former Army Chief, addressing Indian students at the University of Maryland, had said that after going back to the country he and Anna would resume their nationwide tour from Bihar under the banner of recently formed Jantantra Morcha or the Democratic Front.
