New Delhi: In a major surprise, Congress leader Tom Vadakkan, on Thursday, joined the BJP in presence of Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad.

Immediately after joining, the senior leader said he was “hurt” at the situation within the Congress where it was not clear that who was the power centre.

“I left Congress party because when Pakistani terrorists attacked our land, my party's reaction to it was sad, it hurt me deeply. If a political party takes such a position that is against the country then I'm left with no option but to leave the party,” Tom added.
