Kalyan Singh will join BJP on Sunday
Former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Kalyan Singh will officially make a return to the BJP fold at Narendra Modi’s’vijay shankhnad rally’ here on Sunday. Singh, MP from Etah Constituency, has also resigned from the Lok Sabha. ‘I have written a letter on February 25 resigning from the Lok Sabha and joining the BJP now,’ Singh told media persons here. Singh could not join BJP earlier owing to the fear of disqualification in Parliament as the outfit, Jankranti Party, he had formed after quitting BJP during 2009 Lok Sabha elections, merged with the BJP in January 2013. At the time of merger, his party was headed by his son Rajbir Singh. When asked about the timing of joining the BJP, Singh said he did not join BJP earlier to avoid disqualification from the Lok Sabha. Singh said he will join BJP as a common worker and would continue to work for it as common worker. Singh, however, said that he has sought a nomination from the same Constituency and would contest if given ticket.
