Former Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh could be the next Governor of Maharashtra replacing Bhagat Singh Koshyari.
The Congress had it the worst: it not only suffered a humiliating defeat but also lost a string of leaders mainly to the BJP.
A similar breach was reported during the Delhi leg of the yatra.
The BJP state unit tried to balance between the new and old leaders as it has now 60 office bearers.
The BJP has appointed Jaiveer Shergill as national spokesperson and former Amrinder Singh and Jakhar have been appointed as members of party’s national executive.
The BJP leader criticised the AAP government in Punjab for its "laxity" in handling the murder probe of Shiv Sena (Taksali) leader Sudhir Suri and called the law and order situation "worrisome."
Punjab Governor Banwarilal Purohit on September 21 withdrew permission to hold a special Assembly session on September 22 when the AAP government wanted to bring a "confidence motion only".
When former Congress CM Capt Amarinder Singh joined the BJP on Monday, he held a long list of several others who were to follow suit.
Singh's son Raninder Singh, daughter Jai Inder Kaur, and Congress leader and deputy speaker of Punjab Assembly Ajaib Singh Bhatti have also joined the BJP.
Singh will join the BJP in the presence of its senior leaders in Delhi on Monday, PLC spokesperson Pritpal Singh Baliawal had said.
BJP President JP Nadda is likely to induct Amarinder into the party on Monday. The ex-Punjab CM will also merge his new party, the Punjab Lok Congress, with the BJP.
Bhagwant Mann, without naming anyone, said it is unfortunate that those who swear by the Constitution to enjoy fruits of power raise a question mark on the supreme sacrifice of the martyrs.
Singh's reaction came after the Punjab government decided to scrap the proposed textile park project with Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann saying no industrial unit will be set at the site.
Several other names are also doing the rounds of which the prominent ones are Amarinder Singh, Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan and Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi.
Before departing for London, Singh had conveyed his intention to merge his party with the BJP, Grewal said, adding the former chief minister will announce the merger on his return.
Amrinder Singh had formed a new political party – Punjab Lok Congress – after he quit the Congress party following his removal from the post of CM late last year.
Amarinder had earlier said he was ready to reveal the names and give other details of all former ministers and MLAs who were allegedly involved in corrupt activities during his tenure.
Responding to Randhwa's suggestion, Amarinder had said that he was ready to reveal the names and other details of all those involved in such activities.
Former Punjab Congress president Jakhar joined the BJP in Delhi in the presence of party chief J P Nadda, days after he quit the grand old party.
Singh reiterated his warning that Punjab is faced with serious security threats from across the border.
