Web Desk(Tvm)Updated: Thursday May 19, 2022

New Delhi : Veteran Congress leader and former party president in Punjab, Sunil Jakhar, has joined BJP. He had resigned from Congress last week. Reaching  Delhi this noon, Jakhar met with BJP President JP Nadda.

Jhakar said his decision to leave did not come over personal problems but rather owing to broader issues such as “nationalism”, “brotherhood” and “unity” in Punjab.

The 68-year-old former Lok Sabha MP had quit his position as Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee(PPCC) in July last year to make way for Navjot Singh Sidhu.
