Uttarakhand Cabinet Minister Yashpal Arya joins BJP

Uttarakhand Congress leader and cabinet Minister Yashpal Arya joined BJP in presence of Amit Shah in New Delhi today.

Mr. Arya said he was upset with Chief Minister Harish Rawat’s style of functioning and was feeling ignored in the party. His son Sanjiv Arya and an ex MLA Kedar Signh Rawat, also joined the party today.

On Congress leaders’ joining the BJP, Chief Minister Harish Rawat said they might have some compulsion for leaving the congress party.

He stated the second line of the congress party in the state has formidable standing and it will have no impact on the coming elections. Mr. Rawat further said that Congress will announce its candidates on Wednesday.

Uttarakhand goes to polls on February 15.
