Chandigarh, October 22

The SAD today got a major boost in the Doaba region with a former member of the BJP working committee and former chairman of the Punjab Gau Sewa Commission, Kimti Bhagat, joining the party.

Welcoming the Dalit leader into the party's fold, SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal said the party woould be strengthened with Bhagat's entry. He had a huge following among the Bhagat community, particularly in the Jalandhar West constituency, which was contested by the BJP under the SAD-BJP alliance.

Bhagat said he left the party as it was paying only lip service to the problems of Dalits and betraying the farmers by not listening to them. — TNS
