Kalyan Floats Jan Kranti Party on his 76th Birthday

On his 76th birthday, the former BJP leader Kalyan Singh has announced that he will form a new party named as ‘Jan Kranti Pary’ and Rajbir Singh, his son, will be its national president.

Singh said that the party’s agenda will be ‘Hindutva’ and that he has decided to visit Ayodhya tomorrow to have glimpse of Ram Lala and commence his fresh political journey. He would be patron of the new party.

About returning to BJP, he said that his supporters have asked him not to go back to any party. However, Rajbir declined to make a comment on the BJP.
