Kamlesh Shah, Congress MLA from Kamal Nath's home turf, joins BJP


Kamlesh Shah, Congress MLA from Kamal Nath’s home town of Chhindwara, joined the BJP on Friday


In a major setback for the Congress ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, three-term MLA from Amarwara in Chhindwara district of Madhya Pradesh, Kamlesh Shah, joined the ruling BJP on Friday.

Chhindwara, which goes to polls in the first phase on April 19, is the home district of Congress stalwart and former chief minister Kamal Nath.

Kamlesh Shah was welcomed into the BJP by the party’s national joint general secretary Shiv Prakash, Chief Minister Mohan Yadav and state party president Vishnu Dutt Sharma.

The three-term Congress MLA joined the BJP along with his wife, Harrai Nagar Palika president Madhvi Shah, and sister, district panchayat member Kesar Netam.

Kamlesh Shah and his family members joined the BJP as they were impressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s development works, a BJP leader said.

Mahendra Singh, BJP joint leader Satish Upadhyaya and senior minister Kailash Vijaywargiya, among others, were present on the occasion.

Mr Shah won the 2013, 2018 and 2023 Assembly elections from Amarwara on a Congress ticket.

Nakul Nath, the only Congress winner in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections in Madhya Pradesh, has filed his nomination papers from Chhindwara, which has represented his father Kamal Nath in Parliament for nine terms.

Kamal Nath is currently the MLA from Chhindwara assembly seat.
