New Delhi:  A year after quitting Congress and floating a new party, Punjab’s former Chief Minister and Punjab Lok Congress chief Amarinder Singh will join the Bharatiya Janta Party in presence of its senior members.

The 80-year-old Singh will also merge his newly formed Punjab Lok Congress (PLC) with the BJP today and join the party, PTI reported.

Singh had floated the PLC last year after quitting Congress following his unceremonious exit as Chief Minister.

The PLC contested the elections in alliance with the BJP and the Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa-led Shiromani Akali Dal (Sanyuk).

However, none of its candidates could register a win, with Singh himself losing from his home turf of Patiala Urban.

The news agency report quoting PLC spokesperson Pritpal Singh Baliawal, said Amarinder will join the BJP in the presence of its senior members in Delhi today.

Earlier, Amarinder met Narendra Modi and Home Minister of India Amit Shah and termed the meeting a very productive discussion.
