Chandigarh: Former Congress MLA Satwant Singh Mohi on Thursday joined the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal in Punjab.
SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal welcomed Mohi, also a a former member of Punjab Public Service Commission in the party.
Badal noted that the electorate of Punjab gave a clear verdict in favour of SAD-BJP alliance in the civic polls, asserting that people were in favour of development oriented politics.
He said the results of Assembly, parliamentary and civic body polls have proved that Congress is an "issue less, leader less, vision less and outdated political outfit" with no future in the state.
Several senior Congress leaders, including MLAs have made up their minds to come into the SAD fold and they would be inducted in the party at the right time, he said.
Meanwhile, Mohi said he had switched over after prolonged discussions and deliberations with supporters and general public.
"I want to work for the downtrodden," he said.
The leader said that he had observed SAD was taking every community along with it, particularly the weaker sections and this was one of the main reasons why he had quit Congress.
