News of the day

Former Punjab Congress chief Sunil Jakhar, who announced his shock resignation from the party last week, is now a member of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), joining it on Thursday, five days after he left the grand old party. Addressing the media after being inducted by BJP national president JP Nadda at the headquarters of his new party in New Delhi, Jakhar remarked it was not easy for him to leave his now-former party of 50 years, which, he said, three generations of his family served.
