New Delhi: Former Army chief V K Singh on Tuesday left open the question of his taking a plunge in politics or contesting elections in the future.

Talking to reporters on the sidelines of a farmers' agitation here, he opposed FDI in multi-brand retail, contending that it will in no way help farmers.

"I don't know," was all Singh said when asked whether he was open to the idea of joining politics.

On media reports that he would contest the 2014 elections from Haryana, he said, "This is all what you (media) people have written. I have nothing to say."

On FDI, he maintained even when Pepsico came into India, it was said that it would help farmers but that was never the case.

"In India, we have an excellent model in terms of Amul to empower farmers. We can bring about the same change what people are trying to bring through FDI by making suitable modifications to the Amul model," he said.

Singh said farmers would not be benefited because the multi-brand retailers will import cheap items from other countries and not procure them from within India.

On whether he would be part of Anna Hazare's core group, he said it was not necessary to be in a core group when one fights for a cause.

"My aim is to reclaim India and I will be working with people who have same thinking," he said.

    India's population is a mountain of S-H-I-T. India's army, air force, navy chiefs are particles of S-H-I-T in this mountain of S-H-I-T. The navy chief wants to protect Indian assets in the South China Sea but is not concerned about the Anglo-American ownership of India as a whole including himself. Saying that the Congress party has the numbers to let Foreign Direct Investment sail through is like saying Shiv Sena has the numbers to jail anyone writing against particles of S-H-I-T like Bal Thackeray and Raj Thackeray. What matters is not who has the numbers but who has nuclear weapons. The British did not have the numbers in 1857 yet enforced their ownership of India by killing, by guns and sword, over ten million Indians in just the ten years after 1857 and continue to enforce their ownership of India today of which the ability of Anglo-Americans to bring Foreign Direct Investment -- via Indian governments which are proxies for the CIA with all political parties controlled by CIA-RAW -- is an example. To say that Foreign Direct Investment will be allowed only in cities of over one million population and only 53 cities will qualify is like saying we will allow American bases only in cities of over one million population. The invasion and occupation of Afghanistan, the drone attacks on Pakistan are part of the Anglo-American enforcement of their ownership of India. But not guns and sword but nuclear weapons are what matter today and who has the nuclear weapons? IndiasTraitorGovtAndMediaDOTblogspot.com Satish Chandra
