Senior BJP leader Jagdish Sawhney joins Congress

CHANDIGARH, January 11: Senior Bhartiya Janata Party leader and former Chief Parliamentary Secretary Punjab Mr Jagdish Sawhney today joined the Congress. He said, he had come to the conclusion that only Congress could save the Punjab from the disaster the Akali-BJP government had pushed it into.
Mr Sawhney was welcomed into the party by the Punjab in-charge Mr Gulchain Singh Charak and the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee President Capt Amarinder Singh. They said, Mr Sawhney had joined the party without any condition.
Speaking on the occasion Mr Sawhney said, the BJP had failed his expectations and that of the party workers. He said, he had tirelessly worked for twenty years for the BJP but at the end of the day he was let down and punished for speaking the truth.
He said, his only dream was that Batala should be made a district and the Congress leaders had promised him to make it a district when the Congress forms the government.
Replying to questions of the reporters he said, he was disappointed that the BJP did not do anything to get district status for Batala. He said, the party had let down all its cadres as it had failed to deliver and come to their expectations.
