Ghaziabad: Newly-elected BJP Lok Sabha member Gen (retd) VK Singh Saturday said he cannot chose for himself the defence ministry, and will do whatever the party decides for him.
Addressing his first press conference at his residence in Raj Nagar, the Lok Sabha member from Ghaziabad said his first priority would be to implement the promises made in the party manifesto.
Asked if he was ready for his future assignment as the defence minister, the Bharatiya Janata Party leader said he was a "disciplined army officer", and now a "disciplined party soldier" and would do whatever the party decides.
He dedicated his victory to the people of his constituency, and said he will always remain available for the Ghaziabad residents.
Gen VK Singh, who defeated actor-turned-politician Raj Babbar of the Congress by over 5.6 lakh votes, said traffic problems in the city would be dealt with on a priority basis.
