New Delhi: A minority organisation, Jamaat-e-
Ulema-e-Hind, on Wednesday merged with the BJP in the presence of
party president Nitin Gadkari and alleged that Muslims in the
country were disillusioned with the false promises and
policies of the Congress party.
Members of the Delhi-based group joined BJP at the party
headquarters here and Gadkari welcomed them to his party-fold.

In a statement, Jamaat-e-Ulema-e-Hind said it had decided
to merge with the BJP as it was disappointed with the Congress
which had only used the minority as a votebank and exploited
them politically.
"Congress has given this country only scams and communal
riots which has forced the people to look for a change of
government," the statement said.

"Jamaat-e-Ulema-e-Hind has decided to join BJP on the
advice of its members across the country and in view of the
prevailing conditions in the country and the false promises of
secular parties," the organisation added.
