General Secretary of Nepali Congress Prakash Man Singh was born on April 3, 1956 in Chhetrapati, Kathmandu. His father Ganesh Man Singh and mother Mangala Devi Singh both were closely involved in Nepal's democratic movements and party politics of Nepali Congress. He is hence taken as the leader to bear the legacy of his parents. His father Ganesh Man Singh, who was instrumental in the fall of the Rana regime, was the supreme commander of the people's movement in 1990 that overthrew three-decade long party-less Panchayat system.

Prakash Man Singh began his political career in 1977 and was the first person to be elected in the CA Election 2008. He won the election from Kathmandu-1 with 14,318 votes. His nearest opponent Pradip Nepal (CPN-UML) was far behind Singh with 6,789 votes. Dr. Ram Man Shrestha (UCPN-Maoist) came third with 4,836 votes.

Having spent about two years in jail in course of his political career, Singh holds a Master's Degree in Statistics. Despite having the benefit of family legacy and political vigor, Singh is often considered as lacking shrewdness and sometimes factionist politician in the party.

Singh supported Sher Bahadur Deuba when NC split in 2002 but joined the camp of incumbent President SushilKoirala after the unification back in 2007.
