Chandigarh: The BJP’s fresh recruit from the Congress has returned to its former party in what could be the fastest homecoming of an MLA in the state, where elections are just months away.
Congress MLA from Hargobindpur Balwinder Singh Laddi had joined the BJP six days ago. Last night he rejoined the Congress at a small function organized by the party’s Punjab in-charge Harish Chaudhary and Deputy Chief Minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa.
Mr. Laddi’s Twitter timeline is still fresh and contains messages congratulating her on joining the BJP. He has also retweeted some of them.
With the elections approaching, there is a lot of activity going on. Another Congress MLA, Fateh Jang Singh Bajwa, brother of senior party leader and MP Pratap Bajwa, recently joined the BJP.
The BJP has also forged an alliance with former Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, who was earlier with the Congress. Amarinder Singh now runs his own organization after leaving the Congress on bitter terms.
The BJP, which till now played a second role in Punjab along with its former ally Shiromani Akali Dal, has increased its stake in the state and is planning to make a big show in the elections. Party leaders claim that more leaders of Congress and Akali Dal are expected to participate in the elections.
The Aam Aadmi Party or AAP, led by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, is also being seen as another major challenger to the battlefield of Punjab this year.
