Former Haryana Congress leader Nirmal Singh, who was earlier a minister in the state, joined the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in the national capital on Thursday afternoon. He also founded the Haryana Democratic Front. Before joining the party, Singh met Kejriwal at his residence along with his daughter Chitra Sarwara.
The former minister joined AAP during a press conference with Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia at the AAP headquarters.
Singh was also a minister in the Haryana government twice. Singh has been an MLA for four terms. He had won from Naggal assembly constituency in 1982, 1991, 1996 and 2005.
Significantly, after the massive victory of AAP in the recent Punjab Assembly elections, there has been a flurry of leaders joining the party. AAP is looking to expand in states like Haryana and Himachal Pradesh. Earlier on Monday, former Congress Haryana chief Ashok Tanwar joined AAP in the national capital in the presence of party national convener Arvind Kejriwal.
