The Rajasthan Gurjar Mahasabha on Thursday came openly in support of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for ongoing Lok Sabha Elections 2019. The announcement was made by the Mahasabha’s state president Kalulal Gurjar.
Talking to reports, Kalulal Gurjar said that the outfit is leaving no stone unturned in the state to help BJP win a maximum number of Lok Sabha seats which will eventually help Narendra Modi become prime minister once again.
Talking about Col Kirori Singh Bhainsla, who recently joined the Bharatiya Janata Party, acting president of Gurjar Mahasabha Prahalad Singh Awana clarified that the outfit has never worked with Bhainsla in the past and is not likely to work with him in near future.
Earlier, Gurjar Arakshan Sangharsh Samiti leader Bainsla, who led the protest across Rajasthan demanding reservation for Gurjars, joined the BJP.
He was inducted into the party in presence of Rajya Sabha member Anil Baluni and Union Minister and Rajasthan election in-charge Prakash Javadekar at the party headquarters.
Bainsla's son Vijay Bainsla also joined the party.
From serving as a Indian Army officer to forming an Army of his own, Bainsla fought during the 1962 war against China and the 1965 war against Pakistan.
"After closely monitoring ideologies and the working style of the Congress and the BJP, I have decided to join the BJP. I found Prime Minister Narendra Modi as the rarest of the rare leader. He impressed me a lot," Bainsla said.
He said he will continue to work with backward communities.
