Paralympics medalist Deepa Malik, INLD MLA Kehar Singh Rawat join BJP

As the election fever takes over the country, a number of politicians can be seen switching sides in the search of better opportunities. Apart from politicians, there are also people from different walks of life who are making their debuts into politics.

Days after cricketer Gautam Gambhir joined the BJP citing PM Modi’s vision for the country as the motivation behind joining the party, India’s first women athlete to win a Paralympics medal Deepa Malik has joined the party.

Deepa Malik had won a silver medal in women’s shot put event at the Rio Games in 2016. Malik had also won a gold in F-53/54 Javelin event at the para athletic grand Prix held in Dubai in 2018. Malik said that she wanted to contribute to the development of the nation and credited PM Modi for changing the thinking and the policies of the society.

INLD MLA Kehar Singh Rawat also joined the BJP today. Both Rawat and Malik joined the party in presence of BJP Haryana unit chief Subhash Barala, and general secretary Anil Jain.

“I wanted to contribute to the development of the nation. I became physically-disabled about 20 years back but recently, I have been seeing myself as Divyaang. It is because of PM Modi’s efforts for the physically disabled people. He changed the thinking and policies of the society. I want to take the work for the differently abled forward through this initiative”, said Malik after joining the party.
