Kishore Upadhyay: Former Uttarakhand Congress chief Kishore Upadhyay expelled from party, joins BJP


Former Uttarakhand Congress president Kishore Upadhyay today formally joined the Bharatiya Janata Party. Earlier Congres expelled him from the party for six years for anti-party activities.

Upadhyay was earlier removed from all party positions as a disciplinary action after he met BJP leaders, including the party’s election in-charge for Uttarakhand Pralhad Joshi.

Speculation is rife that the saffron party is preparing to field him from the Tehri Assembly seat which he had won in 2002 and 2007.

“I have joined BJP with the spirit of taking Uttarakhand forward. You should ask Congress why such a situation has risen,” Kishor Upadhyay said after joining BJP in Dehradun.

Assembly polls in Uttarakhand will be held on February 14.
