Tajdar Kamal Amrohi, son of noted film producer and director Kamal Amrohi of Pakeezah fame, joined the Congress on Wednesday. After joining the party at the AICC headquarters here, Mr Amrohi, himself a film producer and writer, accused the Sangh Parivar of launching a perpetual hate campaign alienating a large section of the society.

The Congress is the only political force which can claim to be the representative of various castes, religions and linguistic backgrounds. I would indeed feel proud to be associated with this pristine movement, he said. He said he was joining the Cong as the country was suffering under the BJP rule.

Party spokesman Kapil Sibal welcomed Mr Amrohi in the presence of CWC member incharge of Uttar Pradesh Chaudhary Virender Singh and Uttar Pradesh Cong committee president Jagdambika Pal.
