He joined the party in the presence of BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi and Punjab chief minister Prakash Singh Badal .

It happened in Amritsar where Narendra Modi had come to address a rally in support of senior party leader Arun Jailtey who is contesting from the Amritsar Lok Sabha seat. Mr. Kohli was seen sharing the dias with Narendra Modi, Punjab chief minister and other senior party leaders.

Mr. Kohli said that he had come to express his support to the party. He further added that his brother Mr. Manmohan Singh is a honest politician who has given his best to serve the nation but never got a free hand in the governance of the country under the Congress leadership.

Narendra Modi said “Mr. Manmohan Singh’s brother has joined our party. It will increase our strength. Our party is not a membership party but a relationship party. ”

The family of PM was shocked by the turn of events and said that they are with PM and will support him. PMO sources said ”His intentions are not known but he is free to pursue his political career.”

Mr. Singh has six sisters and he is the only son, his mother died at an early age. Mr. Kohli is Mr. Singh’s step brother.
