New Delhi: Former JNUSU leader Kanhaiya Kumar, who fought the last Lok Sabha elections from Begusarai from CPI, and Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mewani are likely to join the Congress today.
Kanhaiya Kumar had fought the Lok Sabha election in 2019 on a CPI ticket from Begusarai but lost to BJP stalwart Giriraj Singh.
Mewani is an independent MLA from the Vadgam constituency in Gujarat and convener of Rashtriya Dalit Adhikar Manch (RDAM).
His joining comes ahead of assembly elections scheduled in December 2022.
Both Kumar and Mevani are known for their vocal opposition to policies of the Narendra Modi government.
Kumar has earlier been the president of the JNU students’ union from the AISF.
