Suspended Congress MP Preneet Kaur joins BJP

Date:

New Delhi: Lok Sabha MP and former Congress leader Preneet Kaur joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) here on Thursday.

A four-time MP and a former Union minister, Kaur joined the saffron party in the presence of senior leaders at the BJP headquarters here.

Kaur was suspended by the Congress in February last year soon after her husband, former Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh, joined the BJP.

Amarinder Singh Raja Warring, president of the Congress’ Punjab unit, had sent a complaint to the party high command, accusing Kaur of indulging in anti-party activities to help the BJP.

Addressing a joint press conference with BJP leaders at the party headquarters here, Kaur expressed her happiness over joining the party.

She also thanked Prime Minister Modi, BJP chief JP Nadda and the “entire BJP family” for giving her an opportunity to work with the party.

Praising Modi’s leadership, Kaur said she decided to join the BJP looking at his policies and the work done by his government in the last 10 years.

“I am fully confident that our children’s future and our country will remain secure under his (Modi’s) leadership and policies,” she told reporters.

Kaur joined the BJP in the presence of senior party leaders, including its national general secretaries Arun Singh, Vinod Tawde and Tarun Chugh and chief spokesperson Anil Baluni, who is a Rajya Sabha member.

BJP in-charge for Punjab and former Gujarat chief minister Vijay Rupani and BJP’s Punjab unit chief Sunil Jakhar were also present on the occasion.

Welcoming Kaur to the BJP, Tawde said she has proved her “potential” with the work she has done in various capacities so far.

Her joining will strengthen the BJP in Punjab and help in taking the state on the path of progress under Prime Minister Modi’s leadership, he added.

“She has joined the BJP today. We welcome her,” Tawde told reporters. “Punjab will (now) be more strong and the BJP too.”
