New Delhi, Feb 25 (IANS) Shortly after a court sentenced him to three years in jail for corruption, former central minister Sukh Ram said Wednesday that he was ready to contest the coming Lok Sabha elections.
“I am a politician and I want to serve the country. If given a chance by the Congress, I will fight the election,” Sukh Ram told reporters at the court premises.

He contended that he had been falsely implicated in the corruption case, in which he was accused of amassing wealth illegally when he was a minister in the 1991-96 government of prime minister P.V. Narasimha Rao.
