All one parivar, can merge my party with BJP, says Subramanian Swamy

published on July 8, 2013

Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy on Thursday offered to merge his party with the BJP.

Speaking to mediapersons after meeting Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi at the Gujarat Bhavan, Swamy said he was a former “Jana Sanghi” and was willing to be a part of the saffron party if the BJP so wanted.

“I am a former Jana Sanghi and my ideology is the same as the BJP. If BJP thinks there should be a merger, I am ready,” he said.

Swamy called Modi, who heads the BJP’s election committee for 2014 Lok Sabha polls, as an “old friend” as he also praised him as a leader.

“I know Narendra Modi since 1972. I support Modi for leadership,” he said, adding, “We are all old friends.”

Swamy attacked the ruling Congress for the alleged misuse of Central Bureau of Investigation against the BJP, especially in Ishrat Jahan encounter case.

“People know that it is just a drama made by the Congress. It is a bogus case, an attempt by the Congress to get minority votes,” Swamy said.

The Left parties maybe talking of unity within all its factions but the parivar parties seem to be heading for consolidation.
