  • Harsh Mahajan is an Indian politician and former member of INC. In 2022, he resigned from the INC and joined BJP.
  • He joined the BJP in presence of Union minister Piyush Goyal and party general secretary Vinod Tawade in New Delhi. In an interview, he talked about this and said,

    I’ve been in Congress for about 45 years. I didn’t lose an election. Congress was there till Virbhadra Singh was there. Today, Congress has become directionless. There is no vision and there is no leadership. After the passing away of Virbhadra Singh, there is nothing left for the Congress in the state. Congress will not win in Himachal, and the BJP will win again. PM Modi is the only leader who will take the country forward.”
