New Delhi: Former Army Chief General VK Singh, who was engaged in a long-drawn battle with the Government over his age issue, joined the BJP on Saturday.
The decision comes months after he shared dais with BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi at an ex-servicemen rally in Rewari in Haryana.
It is, however, not yet clear whether BJP would field him in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
Singh's tenure as the Army Chief was marked by a controversy over his age. He became the first serving chief to drag the government to the court over his age issue which was decided in favour of the government by the Supreme Court.
