Prominent National Conference (NC) leader and former legislator, Shahnaz Ganai joined the BJP on Monday at party headquarters in New Delhi.
Shahnaz Ganai belongs to Poonch district of Jammu division and she represented the NC in the erstwhile legislative council of J&K state.
She joined the BJP in New Delhi at the party headquarters in presence of senior BJP leader and Minister of State (PMO), Dr. Jitendra Singh and BJP national general secretary incharge of J&K affairs, Tarun Chugh. Her deserting of the NC is seen as a jolt to the party in the Poonch district.
Meanwhile, Former Karnataka Chief Minister and JD (S) Karnataka President H.D. Kumaraswamy on Monday said that no one can prevent Narendra Modi from becoming Prime Minister for the third consecutive term.
“I have observed it very closely that no one will be able to prevent Modi from becoming Prime Minister for a third time,” Kumaraswamy told media persons. He said that cracks between Central-state relations are also clearly visible.
“Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has presented 14 budgets in the state assembly, which is a record. Still he alleges that the Centre does injustice with the state,” he said.
“Siddaramaiah is now claiming that the 15th Finance Commission has done injustice to Karnataka state. The Finance Commission works as per the provisions of the Constitution,” he said.
He said that there is no issue of seat sharing between BJP and JD (S). “We want to overthrow this corrupt government and win all 28 seats in Lok Sabha elections. Our aim is to ensure the victory of the NDA. We do not have any intention of snatching constituencies of others,” Kumaraswamy added.
