New Delhi, Congress leader Kuldeep Bishnoi joined the BJP a day after he resigned from the assembly. His wife and former MLA Renuka Bishnoi also joined the BJP with him. He joined the BJP in the presence of Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar and Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat at the BJP headquarters. Party general secretary Arun Singh, media in-charge Anil Baluni and state president Omprakash Dhankhar were also present on the occasion.
Chief Minister Khattar while welcoming the Bishnoi couple to the BJP said that he was in constant touch with Kuldeep Bishnoi and supported the BJP in the Rajya Sabha elections. He claimed that Bishnoi has joined the BJP without any conditions. However, it is being told that BJP will give ticket from his son Bhavya Bishnoi Koi Adampur assembly seat and Kuldeep Bishnoi will contest from Hisar Lok Sabha seat.
Significantly, Bishnoi was already angry with the Congress party. When he was not made the state president of the Congress, he had adopted a rebellious attitude. After this, Congress removed Bishnoi from all party posts due to cross-voting in the Rajya Sabha elections held in June. However, Bishnoi had on Wednesday resigned from the Adampur assembly seat in Haryana’s Hisar district. He is the son of former Haryana Chief Minister late Bhajan Lal and has been a four-time MLA and two-time MP.
