Former Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Rita Bahuguna Joshi joined the BJP today in the presence of BJP president Amit Shah. A huge loss to the Congress ahead of the state elections due early 2017.
The Congress has so far denied that the 67-year-old Lucknow Cantonment legislator would follow her brother, former party leader and ex-Uttarakhand chief minister Vijay Bahuguna, to the BJP.
Neither has Rita Bahuguna Joshi commented on the rumours. Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee communications department chairman Satyadev Tripathi has there was no truth to the reports that Joshi, daughter of former chief minister late Hemwati Nandan Bahuguna, was set to walk out of the party.
