Modi welcoming Kohli into the party said “Dr Manmohan Singh’s brother has joined BJP and this will increase our strength. I welcome him to the party.”
Kohli is not Manmohan Singh’s sibling; he is a close relative.
Kohli joined the saffron party at a joint BJP-Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) rally in Amritsar on Friday evening. The rally was organised in support of BJP’s Amritsar candidate Arun Jaitley.
Manmohan Singh recently dismissed the talk of a “modi wave” and said it was a “creation of media”. His brother Kohli joining the BJP will give a major boost to the party in the last leg of the elections.
