The Congress has not been a good party for the armed forces, former army chief, General V.K. Singh has said. In an interview with CNN-IBN news channel, Gen. Singh said he joined the Bharatiya Janata Party as he was convinced about the need to be part of the political system to bring about a change. Gen. Singh, who joined the BJP last week, described the party's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi as a doer. "When I looked at various things... and especially the resignation by the naval chief convinced me... that if we want to change something, I think it is important to get on to a political platform."
