Boxer and Congress leader Vijender Singh joined the BJP on Wednesday ahead of the Lok Sabha elections. The Olympic medallist had contested the 2019 polls as a Congress candidate from the South Delhi constituency.

He joined the saffron party in New Delhi in the presence of BJP's National General Secretary Vinod Tawde.

Talking to the media after joining the BJP, Singh said, "I have joined BJP today for the development of

the country and to serve the people..." and the athlete called it a "kind of homecoming".

Asked about the recent athletes' protest against the BJP, he said, "I will continue to call wrong as wrong and right as right," and will work towards strengthening athletes.

"Ever since the Modi government has come to power, the kind of respect that the sportsmen are getting across the globe currently is commendable," he asserted.
