Councillor and social worker Jai Bhagwan Upkar ji from Rohini ward of Bawana Assembly and Naveen Dipu Chaudhary, a social activist working in the Gandhinagar area who has been associated with the Congress for a long time, too joined the AAP.

Netaji said he was impressed by the work done by the AAP government and "that is the reason I decided to leave Congress".

He won from the Badarpur Assembly constituency twice -- once as a BSP candidate and second time as an Independent.

Kejriwal said influenced by the policies of the party and the work of the AAP-led Delhi government, they are "joining our family".

"They are warmly welcomed in the Aam Aadmi Party," he said.

Election to the 70-member Delhi Assembly will be held on February 8.
