New Delhi: Congress candidate from Gautam Buddh Nagar Ramesh Chand Tomar today joined the BJP in the presence of party president Rajnath Singh here.
Tomar had unsuccessfully contested the last Lok Sabha polls as a Congress nominee from Gautam Buddh Nagar.
He has returned to the party fold after a gap of over five years as he was earlier a three-time BJP MP from Ghaziabad.
Tomar said he was “coming back to his home.”
“I decided to join the BJP because of Narendra Modi as he has promised good governance and development,” he said after joining the saffron party.
