Sham Lal Sharma joins BJP


Jammu , Senior Congress leader and former Minister Sham Lal Sharma today joined BJP at its Jammu office a short while ago.

He had some differences with the party high command and had resigned from the party few months back.

Sharma had won assembly election from Akhnoor seat on Congress ticket in 2008 but lost the seat to BJP candidate Rajeev Sharma in 2014 elections though he got more than 32000 votes.

His quitting congress and joining BJP is seen as a shot in the arm of BJP and set back to Indian National Congress.
