Satnami spiritual leader Baldas along with his son and supporters joined the Congress party before All India Congress Committee (AICC) In-charge for Chhattisgarh P.L. Punia and Chhattisgarh Pradesh Congress Committee (CGPCC) Chief Bhupesh Baghel at Rajiv Bhawan on Tuesday.
In the previous poll, Baldas had floated his own political outfit named ‘Satnam Sena’ which supported BJP and only because of stormy campaign by Baldas in a chopper allotted to him the BJP succeeded in grabbing 9 out of 10 seats.
During the recent visit of BJP National President, Amit Shah, Baldas had met the former and after that he was very hopeful to get BJP ticket for his son from Arang seat. His formal declaration of joining BJP was also expected.
Meanwhile the declaration of BJP tickets made Baldas angry and he decided to join Congress party. Notably, another spiritual leader of Satnami community the Gaddinashin of Giraudpuri Dham Vijay Guru and his son Rudra Guru are already in Congress and the party has fielded Rudra from Ahiwara seat in Durg district.
