It was May 10, 2011 when Congress leader Rahul Gandhi sneaked into the twin villages of Bhatta-Parsaul in the Jewar assembly constituency of Uttar Pradesh pillion-riding on a motorcycle. The man who drove him on the bike was a farmer leader and a Congress supporter Dhirendra Singh, who now is a BJP MLA from Jewar, about 80 km from Delhi. Talking to TOI, while seated in his office-cum-residence in Rabupura village, Singh narrated the journey of farmers’ protest, the land acquisition policy and his shift from Congress to BJP.
