Dharamsala: Senior Congress leader Major Vijay Singh Mankotia`s brother Ajay Singh on Saturday joined BJP causing a major embarrassment to the rival party.
He was inducted into the party by BJP leader of Dharamsala Kishan Kapoor here.
"I am a separate person and he (Major) is the separate one, we are free to choose any ideology. I was the great admirer of BJP and when asked could not restrict myself from joining the party," Ajay told reporters here.
His brother Major Singh hit the headlines when he had released a CD against Chief Minister Vir Bhadra Singh six years back and had then left the party to join BSP.
In the 2012 state Assembly Elections, Major Singh left BSP and rejoined Congress on the request of Vir Bhadra.
