Bappi Lahiri joins BJP
Music director Bappi Lahiri joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday.
Lahiri, who campaigned for the ruling Congress party in 2004, joined the BJP as he felt there is a wave in the country favouring the party and its prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.
"Ten years back, there was a wave in the Congress' favour. The wave has now changed. The wave is now here," Lahiri told media at the BJP headquarters here.
Several others who joined the party include Tuhin Sinha writer of television soap 'Yeh Rista Kya Kehlata Hai', Prashant Narayan who acted in 'Murder-2', TV actress Ashima Sharma who is also a former president of Jodhpur University Students Union, Sachindra Sharma, writer of children series 'My Friend Ganesha', TV actor Gaurav Chopra and script-writer Rajiv Dhamija.
