Congress national spokesperson Gourav Vallabh on Thursday joined the BJP, hours after quitting Congress, and calling it "directionless".

Former Bihar Congress president Anil Sharma also joined the BJP in the presence of its national general secretary Vinod Tawde in Delhi.

Gourav Vallabh, in a letter to Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge, called Congress party 'directionless', and cited reasons for his exit such as the caste census, and said that he cannot raise ‘anti-Sanatan’ slogans.'

"I do not feel comfortable with the directionless way in which the Congress party is moving forward today. I can neither raise anti-Sanatana slogans nor abuse the wealth creators of the country. I am resigning from all posts and primary membership of the Congress party," Gourav Vallabh wrote on X.

Gourav Vallabh, who handled Mallikarjun Kharge’s Congress president campaign, was an effective voice on economic issues.

He contested the Rajasthan assembly election from Udaipur constituency in 2023. However, the BJP candidate secured a comfortable win with a margin of over 32,000 votes
