Former Congress leader Tajinder Singh Bittu joins BJP

In yet another blow to the Congress party, Tajinder Singh Bittu joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) at the party headquarters in Delhi on Saturday, in the presence of Union Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw and party general secretary Vinod Tawde.

Tajinder Singh Bittu resigned from his post as AICC Secretary- in-Charge of Himachal Pradesh and primary membership Congress party earlier today.

“I hereby tender my resignation from the primary membership of the Indian National Congress and from my post AICC, secretary co-incharge of Himachal Pradesh, effective immediately,” he said in the letter addressed to Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge.

Bittu shared his resignation letter in a Facebook post with the caption, “With a heavy heart, after 35 years, I resign from the Congress party.”

Speaking after joining the BJP, Tajinder Singh Bittu said that the Congress party has deviated from the issues and that he joined the BJP for the betterment of Punjab.

This development comes at a crucial time, amidst the backdrop of the ongoing Lok Sabha elections being held across the nation.

Bittu’s exit marks another setback for the Congress party, which has witnessed an exodus of big leaders in the last few weeks.
