Three term Congress MP from Kerala S Krishna joins BJP

New Delhi: In a major jolt to the Congress, the party’s three-time MP from Kollam in Kerala, S Krishna Kumar, on Saturday joined the BJP here.

Shahnawaz Hussain said that his induction will further strengthen the saffron party

Kumar was inducted in the saffron party fold in the presence of the BJP leaders in the national capital including former Union Minister Shahnawaz Hussain and BJP’s spokesperson Anil Baluni.

Welcoming Kumar in the party, senior BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain said that his induction will further strengthen the saffron party.

Reasponding to a media query on his decision to quit the Congress party and join the BJP, Kumar said, “I worked in Rajiv Gandhi and Narasimha Rao governments as Minister of State and Minister of State independent charge. Decided to devote rest of my life as a soldier of Narendra Modi. I believe people of India should give a mandate to PM Modi for the next 10 years. I am opposed to the leadership of Sonia Gandhi and now her son.”

He continued to attack Congress by saying, ”Narasimha Rao’s remains were not even allowed at the AICC office. He was disrespected. Sonia has no idea of Indian heritage and culture.”

Kumar is the member of the 16th Lok Sabha from Kerala’s Kollam.
