New Delhi: Expelled Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Kamal Farooqui is likely to announce his decision on joining the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Monday.
The former SP leader had met Delhi Chief Minister and AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday and said that “everybody” is keen to join AAP.
Farooqui was sacked by the SP as its secretary after he made a controversial comment that Indian Mujahideen co-founder Yasin Bhatkal was arrested because he was a Muslim.
AAP leader Sanjay Singh confirmed the recent development and said that discussions related to “Farooqui joining the party is on".
Apart from Farooqui, Adarsh Shastri, the grandson of former Indian Prime Minister late Lal Bahadur Shastri, has also decided to quit his a crore-plus plum salaried job at Apple to join the AAP.
Drawing a salary of Rs 1 crore a year, 40 years old Adarsh decided to join the AAP despite his father, Anil Shastri, being a Congress leader.
