Daljeet, who is a businessman from Amritsar, joined BJP when Modi came to campaign for Arun Jaitley who is contesting for Lok Sabha seat. Political observers say that this incident further embarrass Congress which is on the verge of losing 2014 polls.
In a major setback to incumbent Congress, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s own brother Daljeet Singh Kohli has joined Opposition Bharatiya Janata Party today at an election rally in Amritsar. The incident took place after the very next day Manmohan Singh stated that there is “no Modi wave” in country.This is seen as a big embarrassment to both government and Congress party. “Today, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s brother Daljeet Singh has joined the BJP. This will further strengthen us. We are not a membership party. We form blood relations within our Party,” Modi said while welcoming Kohli into the BJP fold.
