Former BJP, INLD leaders join Congress

New Delhi, Sep 13 (UNI) Two former BJP leaders, and one former INLD leader joined the Congress on Monday.
The joinings in the Haryana Congress were done in the presence of Haryana Congress chief Kumari Selja and party affairs in-charge Vivek Bansal on Monday.
The leaders who joined include rebel BJP leader Pawan Beniwal, industrialist Ashok Goel and former Member of Parliament Tara Singh’s son Kanwarjit Singh.
BJP’s rebel Pawan Beniwal, industrialist Ashok Goyal (who had sought BJP’s ticket from Hisar Lok Sabha but could not get it) and former Member of Parliament Tara Singh’s son Kanwaljit Singh aka Prince.
Beniwal had quit BJP in April this year as a mark of solidarity towards the farmers’ protest. Beniwal is likely to be chosen as Congress nominee for the Ellanabad by poll, a seat which fell vacant after INLD’s Abhay Chautala resignes in support of farmers.
Karanjit Singh is the son of former Member of Parliament Tara Singh, who was elected to 10th Lok Sabha from Kurukshetra. Karanjit, too, had been associated with INLD for long before quitting the party.
BJP is in power in Haryana in a coalition with the JJP. BJP has 40 seats in the assembly, JJP has 10 and Congress-31 in the 90 member assembly.
The state is witnessing wide spread farmers agitation, with several protest are being staged against the state government.
