Kanhaiya Kumar, Jignesh Mevani to join Congress today, posters put up outside party office in Delhi

In a move, when some experienced ministers are leaving the Congress party, student leader Kanhaiya Kumar and Gujarat leader Jignesh Mevani are set to join Congress today. The welcoming posters of the young leaders were also put up outside the Congress office in Delhi today.

In the posters, there was a photo of Kanhaiya Kumar along with Rahul Gandhi and a welcoming text for him was written in Hindi that translated that Indian National Congress welcomes Kanhaiya Kumar and congratulates him for joining the party.

Earlier, before the 2019 election, Kanhaiya Kumar joined the CPI or Communist Party of India, and at that time, he contested from Begusarai in Bihar against BJP’s Giriraj Singh. However, he failed to win the elections.

On the other hand, the joining of Jigesh Mevani in Congress is crucial for INC. Mevani is a legislator from the Vadgam constituency in Gujarat, and he is likely to be the face of elections in the state next year.

Jignesh Mevani is a lawyer and a former journalist, and he is joining the Congress party at a time when the party is prioritising the needs of the scheduled castes, scheduled tribe and minorities. Recently, the Congress party appointed Charanjit Singh Channi as the first Dalit CM of Punjab.

He said that appointing Charanjit Singh Channi ji as the CM is the message that the Congress party and Rahul Gandhi have given. He further said that this will have a tremendous impact on not just Dalits but also the subaltern masses.

Meanwhile, Jignesh Mevani, told news agency PTI that he will be joining Indian National Congress along with Kanhaiya Kumar. It is also reported that Gujarat Congress president Hardik Patel will also attend the function in Delhi.
