Former Haridwar MP Rajendra Badi has joined Congress in Delhi. He was accompanied by the state in charge and state president of Uttarakhand Congress in Delhi. He had contested the election of MP from Haridwar district on a Samajwadi Party ticket which he won and became an MP.
After this, he joined the BSP and contested for the post of Mayor in the recently held Roorkee Municipal Corporation elections but had to face defeat. At around five o'clock on Monday evening, former Haridwar MP Rajendra Badi joined the Congress along with his supporters at the All India Congress office in Delhi in the presence of state Congress in-charge Devendra Yadav and state president Ganesh Godiyal.
After joining the Congress, former MP Rajendra Badi said during a phone conversation that today the condition of farmers in the country has completely deteriorated and the present BJP government is responsible for that. Youth are unemployed all over the country, but the government is not making any efforts for employment. On the question of leaving the BSP, he said that if anybody understands the people of this country, it is Congress.
He too is the person of the country and that's why he has joined the Congress party. He said that in the coming elections under the leadership of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, only Congress will form the government in the country and the state. As the situation is going on in the country, Congress is the only option.
Contested elections for the post of mayor
It is worth mentioning that Rajendra Badi had contested the election of MP from SP on the Haridwar seat in 2004 when Uttarakhand was created. He became the MP of Haridwar by defeating the candidates of Congress, BJP and BSP.
After a few years, he had joined the BSP. About two years ago, in the Roorkee Municipal Corporation elections, he contested for the post of mayor as a candidate of BSP.
