Kanhaiya Kumar, the former head of the Communist Party of India (CPI), joined the Congress on September 28, putting an end to months of conjecture. He was joined by Gujarat independent MLA Jignesh Mevani, who expressed sympathy for the Congress doctrine but did not formally join the party. Mr. Kumar explained his decision to join the Congress by saying, “I am joining the country's oldest and the most democratic party, because I feel and so do many other young people, that if the Congress does not survive, then the country will not survive,” addressing a hall packed with his supporters and media personnel at the Congress headquarters. Mr. Kumar claims that the Congress is the sole viable option to the BJP in at least 200 Lok Sabha seats. He did not elaborate on his reasons for leaving the CPI, although he expressed gratitude to his previous party. He expressed his gratitude to the many crore Indians who stood by him and battled alongside their own families and friends.
