Former IPS officer Joins Congress in Lucknow

Former Indian Police Service officer Umesh Kumar Singh and former Uttar Pradesh minister in the BSP government, Raj Bahadur Singh, officially became members of the Congress on Sunday. In a significant political development, rebel Samajwadi Party leader Ravi Prakash Verma is poised to join the grand old party at the Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee (UPCC) headquarters today.

UPCC president Ajay Rai warmly welcomed Umesh Kumar Singh into the Congress fold. Singh, who retired from the position of deputy inspector general, brings his experience and influence to the party as the state prepares for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. The Congress spokesperson remarked, “Ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, there is a beeline for joining our party.”

Adding to the momentum, Janata Dal (United) leader Yogendra Yadav, a former candidate in the Gopalpur (Azamgarh) assembly polls, also chose to align with the Congress alongside Umesh Kumar Singh and Raj Bahadur Singh.

The UPCC made an important announcement regarding the impending addition of Ravi Prakash Verma, a rebel Samajwadi Party leader with a substantial following. Verma, recognized as a prominent OBC (Other Backward Classes) leader from Lakhimpur Kheri, terminated his 25-year association with the Samajwadi Party on November 3, marking a significant shift in Uttar Pradesh’s political landscape. His joining the Congress is anticipated to have a noteworthy impact on the state’s political dynamics.
