In a significant development ahead of the electoral season, Krishnamurthy Hooda, a former minister of the Congress party in Haryana, has dealt a blow to the Congress by tendering his resignation.
On Saturday, he officially parted ways with the Congress, sending his resignation letter to the party’s national president.
Hooda, who hails from Rohtak in Haryana, announced his departure from the Congress, relinquishing his primary membership through an email to the party’s national president, Mallikarjun Kharge.
On February 12, Krishnamurthy Hooda is slated to join the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Alongside him, BJP’s organization secretary, Faneendra Nath Sharma, and state president Nayab Singh Saini, along with former minister Manish Grover, will also be present on this occasion.
Krishnamurthy Hooda disclosed that his supporters from six sectors will gather at the main gate of the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium, from where they will march to the BJP’s new state office as part of a procession.
