Kanhaiya Kumar likely to join Congress on September 28


In a major political development, Communist Party of India (CPI) leader Kanhaiya Kumar and Rashtriya Dalit Adhikar Manch (RDAM) MLA Jignesh Mewani would likely join the Congress party on September 28, said sources.
Earlier, it was reported that the two young leaders would be inducted into the party by Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on October 2, on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti.
However, the induction was preponed to September 28, on the birth anniversary of freedom fighter late Bhagat Singh.
Jignesh Mevani, who is a Dalit leader and MLA from Gujarat’s Vadgam constituency, could be reportedly made a working president of Congress’ Gujarat state unit.
Kanhaiya Kumar, who is a former president of the Jawaharlal Nehru University students’ union, would join the party’s Bihar unit.
According to reports, Kumar had held multiple meetings with Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi to discuss his role in the party.
He had contested the 2019 Lok Sabha election from Begusarai but was defeated by BJP’s Giriraj Singh.
Mevani whole heatedly supported Congresss decision to make Charanjit Singh Channi as Punjab Chief Minister.
The decision of appointing Charanjit Singh ji as the CM of Punjab is a message that @RahulGandhi and @INCIndia have given. It will have tremendous impact amongst not just dalits but all the subaltern masses. For dalits, the move is not just brilliant but soothing too, he said.
