Hudhud times: According to party sources, Kanhaiya Kumar and Dalit leader Jignesh Mevani will join the Congress party today. Sources added that Rahul Gandhi will be present for the induction along with Congress leader Hardik Patel.
Initially, the induction was planned for September 27, which is the birth anniversary of Shaheed Bhagat Singh. However, farmers’ unions had given a call for a nationwide protest on the same day.
Earlier this month, Kanhaiya Kumar had met Rahul Gandhi, sparking rumours of him joining the party.
Jignesh Mevani, an independent Gujarat MLA, announced last week that he would join Congress on September 28 along with former JNU student leader Kanhaiya Kumar.
