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.
