In a significant blow to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, its current Member of Parliament from Jalandhar, Sushil Kumar Rinku, and MLA from Jalandhar West Constituency, Sheetal Angural, have defected to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Both leaders formally joined the BJP ranks at the party’s headquarters in Delhi, marking a notable shift in political allegiance.

The defections of Rinku and Angural come as a setback for AAP, impacting its electoral prospects and signaling internal challenges within the party. Their decision to switch sides underscores the fluid dynamics of Indian politics, where individuals often prioritize perceived opportunities for advancement.

The move also reflects the BJP’s ongoing efforts to bolster its presence and strengthen its position in various regions, including Punjab. By attracting key figures from rival parties, the BJP aims to consolidate its support base and enhance its electoral prospects in the upcoming polls.

As the political landscape continues to evolve in the run-up to the Lok Sabha elections, AAP now faces the task of regrouping and strategizing to mitigate the impact of these defections while maintaining its appeal to voters.
