New Delhi: Today at All India Congress Committee (AICC), Former Union Minister and MP Congress President Kamal Nath announced a new entry in All India Congress who is a member of BJP’s Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s family.
Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s brother-in-law Sanjay Singh joined the Congress on Saturday, just weeks before the state goes to polls on November 28. The move, which the Congress said was a major setback for the BJP, comes a day after a former Congress MP switched sides to join the BJP.
Sanjay Singh is the brother of Shivraj Chouhan’s wife Sadhna Singh. He joined the Congress in the presence of former union minister and Madhya Pradesh Congress president Kamal Nath and the state’s campaign committee chairman Jyotiraditya Scindia .
Addressing the conference, Sanjay Singh said,
“Madhya Pradesh is the heart of India and when we talk about development, Congress changed the map of most of the cities in MP and now when BJP is handling all the work happening in MP, they are just raising new leaders who are from the families of previous BJP leaders and not letting new people with a mindset for the betterment of society. Congress is a party that works for improvement.”
