After creating many political speculations for the last several weeks, former student leader Kanhaiya Kumar and Gujarat Dalit leader Jignesh Mevani today joined the Congress officially. They were inducted at a function at the All India Congress Committee headquarters in New Delhi in the presence of party leader Rahul Gandhi, reports NDTV

Mr Kumar was earlier with the Communist Party of India (CPI) which he joined ahead of the 2019 general election. He then contested from his hometown Begusarai in Bihar against the BJP's Giriraj Singh of the BJP but failed to win.

A legislator representing Gujarat's Vadgam constituency, Mr Mevani is key to the Congress's poll arithmetic ahead of next year's Assembly election in that state.
