Ex-Congress leader Kuldeep Bishnoi joins BJP
Former Haryana Congress leader Kuldeep Bishnoi joined the BJP on Thursday along with his wife Renuka Bishnoi here in the presence of senior party leaders, including state Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar.
Bishnoi, son of former chief minister Bhajan Lal, has been an MLA for four terms and MP for two terms while his wife is also an ex-MLA.
Khattar welcomed him into the party at a ceremony at the BJP headquarters and said his induction will help the organisation.
Lauding Modi as a ''great prime minister'', Bishnoi said it would not be wrong to describe him as ''India's best prime minister'' who always thinks about the country and the poor's welfare.
Bishnoi, who was a BJP ally earlier before joining the Congress, also lauded Khattar, saying his reputation remains spotless despite being chief minister for over eight years.
Union minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat also attended the joining ceremony.
