After joining the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Balbir Singh Sidhu said on Saturday that Congress does not recognize his workers, while Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Interior Minister Amit Shah give credit to their workers.
Balbir Singh Sidhu said, “I have been in Congress since I was 30-32 years old. Now I am 60 years old, have worked with all my blood and sweat for the party, but Congress does not recognize the workers. The way Modi Ji and Amit Shah Ji work, they give credit to their workers.”
Earlier in the day, seven congressional leaders, including four former ministers, joined the BJP at the party office in Chandigarh.
Former ministers Raj Kumar Verka, Balbir Singh Sidhu, Gurpreet Singh Kangar and Sundar Sham Arora were among the seven congressional leaders to join the BJP today.
Apart from them, Congress leaders Kewal S Dhillon, Kamaljeet S Dhillon and the incumbent Congress Mayor in Mohali, Amarjeet S Sidhu also joined the BJP in Chandigarh today.
In addition, two Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leaders Bibi Mohinder Kaur Josh and Sarup Chand Singla also joined the BJP today.
In recent months, the country has witnessed the accession of a number of leaders from various opposition parties to the BJP.
On Thursday, former Congress leader Hardik Patel, who left Congress last month, joined the BJP months ahead of Gujarat’s parliamentary elections, while retired Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Colonel Ajay Kothiyal joined the party on May 24. in Uttarakhand.
