Sagar (Madhya Pradesh) [India], Mar 29 (ANI): Ram Singh Ahirwar, a former Jan Sangh MP from Sagar, spends a simple life. He travels on a 'bicycle' and makes 'beedi' to supplement his income.
Talking to ANI, Ahirwar said: "Simplicity looks good. I got a ticket when I used to make ‘beedi’ and was studying in the university."
"Earlier when I was not getting a pension, my life was too difficult. Meanwhile, I also got paralysed because of which I can’t speak," he said.
"I was inspired by Osho, used to attend his programmes and read books like Bhagwat Geeta, which have brought a major change in my life," he said.
"I got amazed when I heard that Ram Singh Ahirwar got a ticket from the Jan Sangh. At that time, he was studying Philosophy at the university. Ahirwar always gave his best in politics," said Laxmi Narayan Yadav, sitting BJP MP from Sagar.
Govind Ahirwar, a neighbour, told ANI, “Since childhood, I have seen Ram Ahirwar as simple as he is now. He is not glamorous like other politicians.” (ANI)
