Lal joined the saffron party in the presence of BJP-SAD candidate from Amritsar, Arun Jaitley, party state unit president Kamal Sharma and Cabinet Minister Bikram Singh Majithia.
Corruption and favouritism has become routine in the Congress and edicated workers are feeling suffocated in the party, he claimed.
Moreover these are the national elections and in the interest of nation and Amritsar constituency NDA government, under Narendra Modi is a necessity, Lal added.
Taking a dig at Congress candidate Amarinder Singh, Lal said he was reluctant to contest from Amritsar and even if he becomes an MP he won't be able to do anything for the development of this constituency.
Inducting Lal into the party, Jaitley said that Professor has set high moral standards in public life and this father figure's entry in the party will not only boost BJP's prospects in the elections but also benefit it in the long run.
He said Congress has lost its colour and the country now needs Modi.
