Son of former BJP Minister Jaswant Singh,Manvendra Singh today joined in the Congress.
He termed it a difficult decision.
It need be mentioned that his father Jaswant Singh, now 80 yrs old, has been in coma since 2014.
Manvendra Singh quit the BJP on September 22, describing his disenchantment with the party at a public rally with the phrase: “Kamal Ka Phool, Hamaari Bhool” (lotus (BJP) was my mistake).
Jaswant Singh’s rift with the BJP widened when the party refused to field him in 2014 from Barmer in Rajasthan.
It need be mentioned that Jaswant Singh, one of the founder members of the BJP, contested as an independent and lost to the BJP candidate.
The slight did not go down well with the Rajputs, who form about seven per cent of Rajasthan’s voters and have traditionally voted BJP.>
