is a former Fijian
politician of Indian
descent. He represented the Ba East Indian Communal Constituency
, one of 19 reserved for Indo-Fijians
, which he won for the Fiji Labour Party
(FLP) in the parliamentary elections
of 2001. Prior to his election, he worked a farm advisor for the Fiji Sugar Corporation
In 2003, Singh was offered the portfolio of Minister for Environment, together with 13 other FLP parliamentarians who were offered cabinet positions by the Prime Minister, Laisenia Qarase
but the FLP refused to accept this offer.
Singh announced on 8 March 2006 that he would probably not contest the general election
scheduled for 6-13 May 2006. He wished to pursue further studies abroad, he said, but would reconsider if his party asked him to. The Fiji Times
reported on 11 March, however, that he was reconsidering, following a petition from more than 1000 of his constituents. Some had asked him to contest as an independent candidate, he said, but he would wait for the FLP to decide whether to give him the nomination. In the event, he did not contest the election.
