Chandel joined the BJP in the presence of BJP National President Jagat Prakash Nadda, Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur, State President Suresh Kashyap at his residence in Bilaspur a day before Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit.
BJP state president Suresh Kashyap said that Chandel has joined BJP after resigning from Congress. He has been the state BJP president before this. This is a big blow for Congress.
Kashyap said that the reason for the Congress leaders joining the BJP is nepotism in the Congress. BJP will get more majority than before in the upcoming assembly elections.
