Ahead of Punjab Assembly elections 2022, there are speculations that several Punjab Congress leaders, including Vijay Inder Singla, Rana Gurmit Singh Sodhi, and Tript Bajwa, are likely to join Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) soon.
The names which are making the rounds are Vijay Inder Singla, Rana Gurmit Sodhi, Tript Bajwa, OP Soni, Brahm Mohindra, and Bharat Bhushan Ashu.
A report stated that around 15 to 20 people including former state Cabinet ministers, MPs, MLAs, Punjabi singers, and celebrities are likely to join the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Reportedly, several former Punjab Cabinet ministers, MPs, MLAs, Punjabi singers, and celebrities are already in contact with the BJP.
"Since a lot of people are joining BJP, it will take some time. The joining is likely to happen only after four-five days i.e. within a week," the news agency ANI quoted sources as saying.
The political scenario changed in Punjab after former chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh left Congress after months of infighting with state party chief Navjot Singh Sidhu. Later, he formed his own party 'Punjab Lok Congress' and joined hands with BJP.
Punjab assembly polls are scheduled to be held in 2022.
