Former Haryana minister Sampat Singh to rejoin Congress

Saturday, 06 August 2022 | PNS | Chandigarh

Former Haryana minister Sampat Singh will be rejoining the Congress, a step which the senior leader said he is taking as he felt the party could protect better interests of farmers. Earlier, he met senior Congress leader K C Venugopal in Delhi in this regard.  The meeting was arranged by Congress Rajya Sabha MP Deepender Singh Hooda.  After meeting Venugopal, Hooda tweeted, ''Sampat Singhji will soon join the Congress. I am sure the Congress will be strengthened by his joining.'' The six-time MLA had quit the Congress in 2019 and later remained associated with the BJP, though he claimed he never formally joined the ruling party. Singh had quit the Congress just two weeks ahead of the Haryana Assembly polls in October 2019. He was an aspirant from the Nalwa segment for the polls but did not get the ticket.  Before quitting, Singh had switched over to the Congress after quitting the Indian National Lok Dal in 2009. He had remained a minister during the erstwhile Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) government.
