Apart from him social activist and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) senior leader Ravinder Jain and his team — Vijay Kumar, a transporter, and Subash Chand Rana, an activist —have also joined the party.

He had unsuccessfully contested the assembly election in 2017 on a BSP ticket.Welcoming the newcomers, AAP leader Harpal Singh Cheema said that the doors of the party were always open for anybody with a clean public image and commitment to work for the welfare of the people.
