Arvinder Singh Lovely makes U-turn joins Congress

Former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Arvinder Singh Lovely rejoined Congress in presence of Ajay.

Former Delhi Congress chief Arvinder Singh Lovely has returned to the party within a year after joining the BJP.

Lovely, who had joined the BJP in April a year ago, had raked up allegations of bribery in ticket distribution for the MCD polls by the Congress and claimed after meeting BJP chief Amit Shah that many senior Congress leaders were feeling "suffocated" as the party is no longer what it used to be. Referring to Congress' tenures in Delhi and at the Centre, Gupta said, "People had been crying against the corruption and misrule of Congress as a result of which the party has been losing in several states one after the another. I was an ideological misfit in BJP", Lovely said.

Lovely's switch was then projected as a major setback for the Congress because he-a four-time MLA and a minister-was considered an influential face among the Punjabis in Delhi. This development is surely going to benefit the Congress party ahead of the by-polls for the 20 assembly seats. Lovely during the brief interaction with the media after his re-induction into the Congress. "Congress is finished", he had said expressing his unhappiness with the leadership, including that of the-then vice-president Rahul Gandhi.

Also, the Congress had faced a drubbing at the hands of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in the 2015 Delhi assembly elections. "I did not say anything despite this and stayed on", Lovely had said. Lovely has served as a key minister in the Sheila Dikshit-led Delhi government.

A blame-game had started immediately with Dikshit holding Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken responsible for the desertions.
