Kalyan Singh merged his Jankranti Party with BJP

kalyan singhFormer Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Kalyan Singh, who had walked out of BJP before the 2009 Lok Sabha polls, on Monday merged his Jankranti Party (Rashtrawadi) with the saffron party.

However Singh, an independent MP from Etah constituency, could not join the party himself due to the electoral clause under anti-defection law that requires him to first resign from the membership of the House.

The merger was announced by Kalyan’s son Rajvir in a rally attended by BJP’s top-brass leaders including national president Nitin Gadkari, Rajnath Singh, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, Uma Bharti, Kalraj Mishra and Vinay Katiyar.

Later talking to reporters, Kalyan said he is not joining the party right now as it will require him to resign from Parliament, thus necessitating a by-election which is unnecessary as the general elections are due in 2014.

Kalyan lashed out at Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde for his remarks on BJP and RSS during the Congress conclave in Jaipur, and sought an apology from both Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress President Sonia Gandhi over the issue.

“Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress President Sonia Gandhi should apologise to the Hindu society for the minister’s statement,” he said.

The leader said he will join BJP and work for it for the rest of his life to strengthen the party base at the grassroots level.

Kalyan termed corruption, anarchy, inflation, unemployment and Muslim appeasement as the five demons faced by the society.
