A week after meeting Congress president Rahul Gandhi, rebel BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha on Saturday joined the Congress party ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.He bidded adieu to the BJP with heavy heart beacuase he was with the party since over three decades.
The actor-turned-politician Sinha tweeted “It’s with a heavy heart and immense pain that I finally bid adieu to my old party, for reasons best known to all of us, on 6th April, which also happens to be the Sansthapna Diwas of BJP. I don’t hold any ill will for our people as they were like my family and I was groomed in.”
In a press conference held in New Delhi, national Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala welcomed him into the party’s folds and said Sinha is a “real politician” and has “always spoken the truth fearlessly”.
He said he was hopeful that the Congress would “provide me with opportunities to serve the people, society and nation in terms of unity, prosperity, progress, development, and glory.”
