Amarinder to merge his party with BJP

Wednesday 06th July 2022 08:23 EDT

Former Punjab chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh is likely to merge his party Punjab Lok Congress with the BJP after his return from London, where he is recovering after a spinal surgery. Though there is no word from the party, senior Punjab BJP leader Harjit Singh Grewal claimed that a decision in this connection has been made. Before departing for London, Singh had conveyed his intention to merge his party with the BJP, Grewal said, adding the former chief minister will announce the merger on his return. Singh had floated the PLC after he quit the Congress following his unceremonious exit as the chief minister last year.
