NEW DELHI – Ahead of the Lok Sabha Elections 2024, former Indian envoy to US, Taranjit Singh Sandhu has joined the Bharatiya Janata Party.

Sandhu, who is from Punjab’s Amritsar, said “In the last 10 years, I have worked closely with PM Modi’s leadership, especially in the relationship with the United States and Sri Lanka. PM Modi is development focused. Development is very much needed today, and this development should reach Amritsar too. So, I thank the party president, the Prime Minister, Home Minister who encouraged me for the new path of service to the nation that I am entering.”

Sandhu said that Amritsar should not miss the opportunities the country is getting, and his nomination for the Lok Sabha candidate will be decided by the party itself.

Meanwhile, the BJP and Congress have not named candidates for 13 seats in Punjab, whereas the AAP has named 8 candidates for Lok Sabha elections, including 5 ministers from Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann-led cabinet.

  • The art of diplomacy is a lot different than political mud wrestling. Soon, Mr. Sandhu will find out that he does not have the stomach for the mudslinging and that selling his soul to the devil for political rewards has no benefits. In the end, the result would be that he will be returning to the United States to live off his retirement years in beautiful Virginia rather than in the polluted capital of India.

  • Taranjit Singh Sandhu was a brilliant diplomat. Hoping he will succeed in his new endeavor. Amritsar, and for that matter India, is lucky to have him as their candidate. He is a brilliant mind and knows how to serve his people. See nothing but great future for him.

    Politics is always combative! But I believe he will be a fighter to the nail.

    Hoping people will receive him with open minds and receive this great Sikh patriot with open hands!
