Ferozepur MP Sher Singh Ghubaya from Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD), joined the Congress on Tuesday in the presence of party president Rahul Gandhi.
“Congress president Rahul Gandhi welcomes Ferozepur MP Shri Sher Singh Ghubaya to the Congress party. We wish him all the best,” the Congress said on Twitter.
Mr. Ghubaya is considered a strong contender for the Ferozepur Lok Sabha seat.
He is the second MP of the NDA to join the Congress in the last three days. On Saturday, BJP MP Savitri Bai Phule joined the Congress in the presence of Rahul Gandhi, general secretary for Uttar Pradesh (east) Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and general secretary for UP (west) Jyotiraditya Scindia.
