It was a party that had succeeded in keeping the Bhopal scrutiny off the role of its former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, but no one was sure how the sidelined Arjun Singh would react.

Deprived of power, he was a politician given to high-stakes political theatre reason enough for the chewing of nails within the Congress.

Incidentally, Singh was dropped from the party's highest policy making body Congress Working Committee on March 4 and was made a Permanent Invitee.

Considered a shrewd strategist, Singh was Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh between 1980 and 1985 and was made Governor of Punjab just a day after he took oath as Chief Minister for the second time in the state.

He became Governor at the height of militancy and helped a young Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi reach an accord with Akali Dal leader Sant Harchand Singh Longowal which came to be known Rajiv-Longowal peace accord.
