After meeting with Uttarakhand chief minister on Wednesday, Colonel (retd) Vijay Rawat, brother of late Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) General Bipin Rawat, joined the ruling BJP ahead of upcoming elections in the state.
“My father was with the BJP post his retirement. Now I have got the opportunity to join the party. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision is out-of-the-box. That is something which inspires me,” he said. “This is a party that wants to grow in all aspects,” he added.
