The 8 feet man is 45-year-old and has registered his name in the Limca Book of Records. There are talks about his name being registered in Guinness Book of Records.

He reached the Chief Minister's residence because of his financial situation. His hip bone is in a critical condition and it needs replacement. The replacement operation would cost Rs 8 lakh.

"I have to get my operation done in New Delhi. I have not received any help from the government yet. People from all over the world come to make documentaries on me. There should be some concern from the government," Singh said
