Former Army chief General VK Singh joins BJP
Former Army chief General VK Singh has joined Narendra Modi led Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP). However, it is still unclear whether Singh would contest the crucial upcoming General Elections or not. The decision comes months after he shared dais with BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate Modi at an ex-servicemen rally in Rewari in Haryana.

The BJP has seen several former bureaucrats, including former Home Secretary RK Singh and former diplomat Hardeep Puri, coming into its fold in the past few weeks. Now after the joining of VK Singh into BJP, the party is getting successful in catching the attention of some of the leading names in the party.

Recently the country has seen some great amount of shuffling in politics like two Gujarat Congress MLAs resigned on Monday to join the BJP, reducing the Congress's tally to 50 in the 182-member Assembly. MLAs Chhabil Patel, representing Abdasa assembly seat in Kutch district, and Prabhu Vasava, from Mandvi in Surat district, resigned on Monday.

In a major setback to the party former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee's niece Karuna Shukla joined Congress and slammed Narendra Modi saying his promise of serving the country is nothing but "plain dishonesty".

Former Gujrat Chief Minister and Cheif of Gujarat Parivartan Party (GPP) Keshu Bhai Patel who has decided to quit from the politics and has wished that the GPP floated by him against Narendra Modi should merge with the BJP. This statement of Patel ahead of the Lok Sabha elections will come as a boost for the Modi's BJP and help in its plan to win maximum number of seats from the state.

Another senior Congress leader and MP from UP's Siddharthnagar Jagdambika Pal has threatened to join the saffron camp if the Congress party fails to give him "his dues."
