Former AAP leader Jagbir Singh Brar joined the BJP here on Tuesday ahead of the remaining two phases of the Lok Sabha elections.

Brar, a former Punjab MLA, joined the BJP here at the party headquarters in the presence of senior leaders, including party national general secretary Tarun Chugh.

Before joining the AAP about a year ago, Brar was a member of the Shiromani Akali Dal.

He had won the Jalandhar Cantonment seat on a SAD ticket in the 2007 assembly elections.

He also served as president of the Congress' Jalandhar district unit in the past, BJP national spokesperson Shahzad Poonawalla told reporters at a press conference at the party headquarters.
