In a major embarrassment to the Congress, Kohli joined the BJP at a public rally in Amritsar on Friday in the presence of the party's prime ministerial candidate Narendra
In Amritsar, Kohli said that he was ‘depressed’ over the plight the Congress has landed itself in. He also denied having taken any advantage of being related to the Prime Minister.
"My brother has been Prime Minister for 10 years. Tell me if you have seen any deal that I have made in Amritsar. One deal I have certainly had is with Modi, Prakash Singh Badal, Arun Jaitley and that has been for the development of Amritsar," he said.
The entry of Kohli, a local businessman, into the BJP came a day after the Prime Minister rejected perceptions of a 'Modi wave' in the country.
Asserting that the Congress could again form the government at the Centre, the Prime Minister said UPA-III is not impossible.
Welcoming Kohli into the BJP fold, Modi had said that he will further strengthen the party.
Meanwhile, Manmohan Singh's nephew Manbir Singh said the whole family is shocked over Daljit joining the BJP. He, however, said that he has no knowledge of any deal having been struck between Daljit and the BJP.
"We are with Doctor Saheb (PM) and support him and his policies. And in Amritsar, we support Amrinder Singh," he said.
"I feel very sad. I have no control. They are all adults," he said while replying to queries on the sidelines of the Padma awards function in Delhi.
