Praveen, the son of party president Sanjay Nishad, joined the saffron party in the presence of Union Minister JP Nadda.

“The entrance of the Nishad Party will impact several Lok Sabha seats in eastern, western and central Uttar Pradesh,” Nadda said at a press conference at the party headquarters here.

Nadda did not announce any seat-sharing pact with the new ally. He, however, signalled that Praveen may contest the Lok Sabha elections. “Since he is in electoral politics, he will contest the polls,” he told reporters.

Nishad Party president Sanjay Nishad said that their party in alliance with the BJP is committed to ensuring a second term for Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
