Former AAP leader Shazia Ilmi meets Amit Shah, says will be joining BJP soon

New Delhi(Web Team): A day after former IPS officer and Team Anna member Kiran Bedi joined Bharatiya Janata Party, former Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Shazia Ilmi met BJP chief Amit Shah and said she will be joining the party soon.

After meeting Shah, Ilmi said, “I had a good meeting with Amit Shah ji, he welcomed me in the party and will be joining party(BJP) soon.”

Earlier in the day, News agency ANI had quoted BJP leader Ashwani Upaadhyay saying, “Shazia will join the party at 3 pm today. We welcome her.”

On Thursday, asserting that many people are disenchanted with the Arvind Kejriwal-led party, Shazia Ilmi had said that she would aggressively campaign against the outfit.

“I want to expose the AAP for what it is and so I will do whatever I can to that effect,” Ilmi told the media here.

Ilmi had quit the AAP in May last year, stating that there is lack of inner party democracy in the party. She had also accused Kejriwal of ignoring other leaders and being surrounded by ‘crony clique’.
