“If I win in the polls, I will build hospital and schools in my city,” he told news agency ANI.

On being asked how he affords campaigning, Singh said, “I am not able to print posters and banners, but the poor people will vote for me. I campaign on my scooter and use the money that I earn from my burger joint while campaigning in the polls.”
