Days after Vijay Sampla removes ‘Modi Ka Parivaar’ tagline from his social media profile, Punjab BJP chief Sunil Jakhar meets him


Chandigarh, Apr 20: BJP chief Sunil Jakhar on Saturday reached out to party leader Vijay Sampla, who is apparently upset after he was denied the party ticket from the Hoshiarpur (reserve) Lok Sabha constituency.

Jakhar along with party leaders Harjit Singh Grewal and Vineet Joshi met Sampla at his residence in Hoshiarpur.

Sampla, the former union minister, was apparently expecting the party ticket from Hoshiarpur but the BJP fielded Anita Som Parkash, the wife of sitting MP and Union Minister Som Parkash, from the constituency.

After Sampla was denied the ticket, he had removed ‘Modi Ka Parivaar' tagline from his social media profile.

“Ek raasta band hota hai to bhagwan aur kai raaste khol deta hai. Mere liye bhi bhagwan ne koi raasta zaroor nirdharit kiya hoga. (If one path closes, God opens many paths. God must have decided a path for me too),” he had posted on X.

Sampla, a Dalit leader, successfully contested from the Hoshiarpur seat in 2014. He had also been the minister of state for social justice and empowerment. In 2019, the BJP had fielded Som Parkash from the seat.

Sampla headed the Commission for Scheduled Castes from 2021 to 2023.

Polling for the 13 Lok Sabha seats in Punjab will take place on June 1.
