Vikramaditya Singh to join Congress today

JAMMU: Vikramaditya Singh, son of veteran Congress leader Dr. Karan Singh and the scion of the Dogra dynasty, will join the Congress on Thursday.

The step ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections is being considered a “big shot in the arm” for the party in Jammu and Kashmir in general and the Jammu region in particular.

Highly placed sources said for the last couple of months, the Congress leadership was in touch with Vikramaditya, who had quitted the PDP on October 22, 2017, blaming the then Mehbooba Mufti-led PDP-BJP government for propagating the “anti-Jammu policies”.
