BJP leader Arvinder Singh Lovely rejoins Congress after he resigned in April 2017 citing reason “ideologically was a misfit in the BJP party.” Known for being a loyalist once to former Delhi CM Sheila Dixit, he received a warm welcome in the presence Congress president Rahul Gandhi and Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken.
Feeling lovely of Singh’s return, Maken told to media, “We are happy to announce that Lovely has joined Congress back. We welcome him to the party again. Congress will be strengthened by his presence again and we will serve the people of Delhi.”
Lovely is a four-time MLA, first elected to the Delhi Legislative Assembly in 1998. He took an exit of the Congress to join BJP in April 2017 ahead of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi elections. He hit out at Sheila calling a “burden on the Congress ” and that Maken loves his ” comfort over hard work ” soon after he joined BJP.
