A strong votary of power politics, the veteran Thakur leader from Madhya Pradesh, has wielded power as Chief Minister of this central state, Governor of Punjab, Congress Working Committee (CWC) president, and a Union minister holding portfolios like HRD and Communications.

Arjun Singh, who speaks in a trademark slow-but-emphatic manner, always lived up to his image -an image based on his belief that politics is but the s**** of manipulation. This s****, which he learnt quite early in his political career, has been the mainstay of his politics.

Arjun Singh, a firm believer that power can overcome many handicap, has blended this acumen with a characteristic that is no less important in Congress politics -utter loyalty to the Nehru-Gandhi clan. His quota plank, ostensibly to help out Rahul Gandhi in Uttar Pradesh, is a reflection of this line of thinking

Donning a different role as the Governor of Punjab at the height of militancy, Singh was the architect behind the Rajiv-Longowal accord.
