Former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh and his party the Punjab Lok Congress (PLC), is all set to join the BJP on Monday after a party meeting.
It is reported that as per party spokesperson Pritpal Singh Baliawal, seven former MLAs and one former MP, who joined the PLC, will also be among those to follow Singh.
After his meeting with Union Home Minister and BJP leader Amit Shah on September 12, the former Punjab Chief Minister said he held a very productive discussion on various issues related to national security, rising cases of narco-terrorism in Punjab and the future roadmap for the state's overall holistic development.
The former CM had conveyed his intention to merge his party with the BJP before departing for London, senior Punjab BJP leader Harjit Singh Grewal had said in July. The former chief minister would announce the merger upon his return, Grewal had said at the time.
Amarinder Singh formed the Punjab Lok Congress (PLC) after quitting the Congress following his unceremonious exit as chief minister in September last year.
