Six leaders from Punjab, including Amanjot Kaur Ramoowalia (daughter of senior leader Balwant Singh Ramoowalia) and SAD leaders Gurpreet Singh Shahpur, Chand Singh Chhatha, Baljinder Singh Dakoha, and Jathedar Preetam Singh, joined the BJP on Monday.
The new entrants into the saffron party also included Chetan Mohan Joshi, a motivational speaker and founder member of AAP.
The induction took place at the BJP headquarters here in the presence of Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, MP and Punjab in-charge Dushyant Gautam, and Punjab leader and General Secretary Tarun Chugh.
Gautam said the process of new inductions from Punjab will continue as “leaders from Punjab know that only BJP under the guidance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi can fulfil the aspirations of people of the state”.
"Punjab wants peace and harmony," Gautam added.
Welcoming the new entrants, Shekhawat said the presence of such "eminent" personalities in the party is a cause for celebration for not just the people of Punjab but the entire country.
“Some people are misguiding people of Punjab in name of farmers. We will work to ensure historic results from Punjab,” he said.
Chugh, meanwhile, recounted the contributions of Balwant Singh Ramoowalia for the welfare of the daughters of Punjab.
