SHIMLA:
 
SINGHI Ram, a six-time Congress legislator from Himachal Pradesh, on Saturday joined the BJP in the presence of Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur here. Ram was considered close to Congress veteran and former Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh and belonged to his Rampur Assembly constituency. “A political party always gets benefit with the joining of a leader of other party.
 
We will definitely get some advantage with the joining of Singhi Ram in the BJP,” Education Minister Suresh Bhardwaj told the media here. In the 2007 Assembly polls, Nand Lal, an officer who was part of then Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s security cover, got a Congress ticket from Rampur, replacing Ram.
