Early life and family
After retiring in 1951 Veerasingam played a key role in the co-operative movement in Jaffna District. He was elected the first president of the Federation of Co-operative Societies, Jaffna District, a position he held until his death. The Veerasingam Hall, a public hall/office building in Jaffna owned by the co-operative society, was named after him.
Veerasingam contested the 1947 parliamentary election as an independent candidate in Vaddukoddai but was defeated by the All Ceylon Tamil Congress candidate K. Kanagaratnam. He however won the 1952 parliamentary election and entered Parliament.
