Ex-BJP Minister Kusmaria joins Congress in presense of Rahul Gandhi

Bhopal, February 8, 2019 (Ataullah Faizan): Former minister and ex-BJP leader, Dr Ramkrishna Kusmaria joined the Congress party during the rally of Rahul Gandhi in Bhopal on February 8. It is yet another shot in the arm for party. A few days back, former BSP MLA Usha Chaudhary joined the Congress.
“Dr Ram Krishna Kusmaria joined Congress in presence of Rahul Gandhi during a massive congregation of Congress.
Dr Ramkrishna Kusmaria revolted against BJP when he failed to get Assembly election ticket. He had independently contested Assembly election from two places, Damoh and Patharia. From Damoh seat, he contested election against then Finance Minister Jayant Mallaiya. He got defeated from both the seats.
It was since then that he is having strained relations with BJP and is languishing in oblivion. It was after Assembly elections, it was being fathomed that he may join some other party. Now, the murmurs are underway in political corridors that he is in talks with Congress and may join it during Rahul Gandhi’s Bhopal tour on February 8.
The persons close to Dr Ramkrishna Kusmaria told that Kusmaria is in regular touch with Congress and he may join Congress. The efforts were made to contact Kusmaria but he could not be contacted on phone. Meanwhile, Congress is ecstatic about the prospectus of Kusmaria to join the party fold as this will be only increase its hold particularly in Damoh belt which is considered as bastion of BJP.
