The joining of these leaders took place at an event where BJP leader Rajiv Babbar and Delhi Minority leader  Atif Rasheed were also present with other senior BJP leaders.

“Be it BMC election or Uttar Pardesh assembly elections, Muslims contributed lot. The party will give equal opportunity to all communities,” said Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari.

Member of Parliament (MP) Maheish Girri said: “We will give equal opportunities to all communities and will encourage women empowerment.”

And as the politics heat up in Okhla, an avid supporter of AAP Sultan was seen waiving BJP flag in Abul Fazal Enclave. Moreover, a BJP flag was hanging in his house in the locality.

He said he had joined the BJP a few months ago.

Sultan catapulted into popularity in the locality as he was seen campaigning with Congress’ Asif Md Khan earlier. But he changed the camp as he was seen supporting Amanatullah Khan avidly during the last Assembly election, said sources, adding that however now he appeared disillusioned with both the parties.
