Singh contested from Khanpur at the 2012 legislative assembly election as a candidate of the Indian National Congress (INC). In May 2016, along with eight other legislators, he revolted against the Harish Rawat-led INC government in the State.[2][3] Around this time, he quit the INC and joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). He was disqualified as a legislator under the Anti-Defection Law only to be elected from the BJP at the 2017 election.[4]
