Punjab Congress leader Ashwani Sekhri joins BJP

Chandigarh: A Hindu face, Sekhri was the MLA from the Batala assembly seat thrice in 1985, 2002 and 2012 and a minister in the Captain Amarinder Singh-led government in 2002-2007. He unsuccessfully contested the 2022 Punjab Assembly elections against Aam Aadmi Party’s Amansher Singh Shery Kalsi.

Speaking on the occasion, Jakhar said, “Congress has deviated from its ideology of secularism and nationalism and was now reduced to a regional party from a national party.”
