There are tales galore of PP Singh winning bouts against wrestlers considered as stalwarts. His greed for power and money has got him into crime and politics and, here too, he has carved a niche for himself in the world of crime. He knows to get the work done by hook or crook.
In his greed for power, he jumps into politics and has a strong-hold in the local elections.
