TO WOO MUSLIM VOTES SP OFFERS JASWANT SINGH TO JOIN SP
SP OFFERS JASWANT SINGH TO JOIN THE PARTY
Senior SP leader Mohammed Azam Khan on Thursday invited rebel BJP veteran Jaswant Singh to join his party. Talking to the media persons in Rampur on Thursday, Azam said: “It was disheartening to know how such a veteran politician was not being awarded the respect and honor that he deserves.
But SP is ready to acknowledge his experience in politics.” Azam was not forthcoming whether or not the SP would offer Jaswant a ticket but the Rajasthan veteran can prove to be a prized
catch especially if the involves him in campaign against BJP stalwarts particularly Rajnath Singh in Lucknow. Jaswant has accused Rajnath of betrayal. The SP has already changed its candidate in Lucknow replacing Ashok Bajpayee with sitting Lucknow MLA and minister
Besides, the way Jaswant martyred himself by writing a book of Jinnah which forced him to leave BJP a few years ago, can also make him a perfect campaigner to woo Muslims. The book had fetched unprecedented popularity to him along with a call from Pakistan’s capital Islamabad to attend a function organized on the occasion of the launch of his
book on Jinnah.He made a comeback to the BJP recently but is on the verge of leaving
the party again after the party denied him the ticket from Barmer.
