Congress leaders – Gourav Vallabh and Anil Sharma on Thursday joined BJP. They were welcomed into the party fold by BJP General Secretary Vinod Tawde.

Gaurav was national spokesperson of Congress party. He quit party on Thursday morning.

Prof Vallabh announced his resignation via his social media handle by posting a quote from the Mahabharata and in his letter, he wrote, “The directionless way in which the Congress party is currently going forward makes me uncomfortable. I cannot support anti-Sanatan slogans nor can I criticize the country’s wealth creators day in and day out. Therefore, I am resigning from all positions and the primary membership of the Congress party.”

He also said that he was hurt by the party’s stand on the Ram temple in Ayodhya.

Prof Vallabh, who represented the Congress on TV debates on finance and economy related issues, had recently contested the Assembly elections from Udaipur and lost.

Anil Sharma is former Bihar Congress president.
