S.M. Krishna joining BJP not a loss for party: Congress
Close on the heels of Congress leader S.M. Krishna joining the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the grand old party said his ouster from the party was not loss for them."He is a good administrator and he did good work in his regime, but him joining the BJP is not loss for the Congress. We lost a good leader, but we are not losing anything," Congress leader N.A. Harris told ANI.Criticising Krishna's decision, another Congress leader Meem Afzal said a person of his age should not expect all his wishes be fulfilled."This is not surprising for us as he had decided this long before. He has spent so many years with the Congress and if he wants that the Congress guarantees him chief minister post at this age, then I think it is not necessary that all the wishes of a person get fulfilled in politics. Let's see what post the BJP gives him," Afzal told ANI.Krishna yesterday joined the BJP and stated that he would like to rededicate himself to the cause of the nation under the saffron party's ...

New Delhi: Congress veteran and former Karnataka Chief Minister S M Krishna, who had quit the party in January, today formally joined the BJP at its headquarters here. He joined the BJP at a programme in the presence of party chief Amit Shah and other key leaders. Praising Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Shah, he said "they have taken the country to great heights." "I am grateful today that I am joining the party which was led by the great leaders. I see great India emerging under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and ably supported by the party President Amit Shah," he told reporters after joining the party. Krishna said that these two leaders "have taken the country to great heights and this is not an exaggeration."Earlier this year, Krishna has resigned from the Congress and also served as the Karnataka Chief Minister between 1999 and 2004.

Cong veteran SM Krishna joins BJP; says Modi is taking India to great heights
Congress veteran and former Union minister S M Krishna today joined the BJP and said he was "humbled" to join the party which has leaders like Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has taken the country to great heights. The 84-year-old leader had quit the Congress after nearly 50 years in January after expressing his unhappiness for being sidelined. "I am humbled today that I am joining the party which was led by great leaders. I see great India emerging under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and ably supported by the party President Amit Shah," Krishna told reporters after joining the saffron party at its headquarters here. Praising both Modi and Shah, Krishna said that these two leaders "have taken the country to great heights and this is not an exaggeration". He said he always enjoyed cordial relationships with BJP leaders since the time when Atal Bihari Vajpayee was the prime minister. Welcoming Krishna into the BJP, Shah said his joining is a message to all honest politicians that they should strengthen the hands of Prime Minister Modi. Terming the Krishnas decision to join the BJP as "timely one", Shah said, "Krishna is joining the party after witnessing change in the country since Modi became Prime Minister. Since then the partys acceptability across the country has gone up." Shah said his presence will increase the partys strength not only in Karnataka but across the country. Krishnas induction is also seen as a big boost to the BJP, which is now looking to spread its footprint in southern India ahead of the assembly elections in Karnataka next year. The party will also give him due respect keeping in mind his seniority, the BJP president added. While quitting the Congress, Krishna, former External Affairs Minister, said the party is in confusion whether it needed mass leaders or not, in clear indication of him being upset with the party. Krishna was Karnataka chief minister between 1999 and 2004. He has also served as the Maharashtra governor. He had returned to state politics after stepping down as External Affairs Minister in 2012.

Five South Korean tourists were injured in a terror attack outside Britain's parliament, Seoul's foreign ministry said today.

They were being treated in two local hospitals, it added.
