Udit Raj joins Congress after BJP denied him Lok Sabha ticket

Upset over the refusal of a ticket for the Lok Sabha polls, BJP sitting MP from North West Delhi Udit Raj on Wednesday joined the Congress party. The party took to Twitter and posted a picture of Udit Raj along with Congress president Rahul Gandhi. On Tuesday, the Bharatiya Janata Party replaced Raj from the North West Lok Sabha constituency with Punjabi Sufi singer Hans Raj Hans. Raj, who had earlier said he would contest as an independent candidate if the party did not announce his candidature, said he will decide his future course of action after consulting his supporters.
