New Delhi, April 10: As per the speculations former Congress leader SM Krishna, who had joined Bharatiya Janata Party a year ago, is planning return back to the Congress party ahead of crucial Karnataka polls.
Citing Congress state sources, News18 reported that SM Krishna is disillusioned with the BJP and feels that the saffron party has humiliated him by giving no importance to him.
“It has also refused to field his daughter Shambhavi from Rajarajeshwarinagara Assembly seat in Bengaluru. Neither the state BJP, nor its national leadership is giving him any importance. He is actually a nobody in BJP. It has hurt him deeply. He has been sending the feelers to Congress for the past two months”, News18 quoted party senior leader as saying.
However, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah refused to comment on the speculations.
“I don’t know,” he told news agency ANI when asked about Krishna’s planning.
Meanwhile, another Congress leader, K Rahman Khan said, “All are welcome but we do not have any information on this.”
In February, Arvinder Singh Lovely also re-joined the Congress.
“It was not an easy decision for me to leave Congress. The decision was taken in pain. Ideologically, I was a misfit there (BJP),” Lovely had told the media.
