More Cong leaders likely to join BJP after May 23

Early Times Report
Jammu, May 1: For taking a saffron plunge, some Congress leaders in Jammu and Kashmir are eagerly awaiting for May 23, when results of the Lok Sabha elections will be announced.
According to the sources in political circles, a number of senior and middle rung Congress leaders, including two former ministers, are in touch with the BJP leadership for shifting their loyalty but only after outcome of the results of Lok Sabha elections.
While elaborating, sources said that around a dozen senior and middle rung Congress leaders are interested to join BJP, which is also looking for some credible mass based leaders to be projected as the possible candidates in next Assembly elections in the state.
Some RSS and Sangh Parivar functionaries are mediating with these Congress leaders while BJP national vice-president and incharge J&K affairs Avinash Rai Khanna is personally monitoring the developments in this regard.
However, sources added, the BJP and RSS at the same time are refraining to make any commitment for mandate to the new entrants and this is the reason of dilemma among these Congress leaders, who are hesitating to shift loyalty in absence of assured mandate.
In view of no clarity from the saffron party, sources said that these Congress leaders are awaiting for the outcome of Lok Sabha polls for their next move. In case BJP returns to power at the Centre, then there is remote possibility of Congress revival in the State, which has already gone virtually leaderless after Sham Lal Sharma quit the party and in those circumstances, we will have no option other than shift the loyalty for political survival, explained a senior Congress leader and former minister.
