  • Months after joining BJP Arvinder Singh Lovely makes a comeback in Congress on Saturday

Lovely had the BJP in April, 2017. Aam Aadmi Party won 67 seats, more than doubling its seats from 28 seats in 2013. The official twitter handle of the party soon after stated: "Congress president Rahul Gandhi welcomes Arvinder Singh Lovely back into the Congress family". Lovely was, however, not allowed to answer a question from a reporter on what he thought of his grave charges levelled against the party and Maken when he left the BJP. Lovely met party president Rahul Gandhi at his residence. "But then after, I had a chat with Ajay Maken and sort the differences", said Arvinder Singh Lovely at the AICC headquarters in a press conference. "It is my fault and I will correct it". Upon hearing the news, Maken had broken down in tears as he struggled to control his emotions. Maken said he was hurt by Lovely's decision adding that he didn't quite know what to comment on a a person who gives up his ideology for political gains.

A prominent member of Sheila Dikshit's cabinet and former Delhi Congress chief Arvinder Singh Lovely, who had joined BJP in the run-up to the municipal elections in April previous year, returned to the Congress on Saturday.

According to The Times of India, he had been an MLA from East Delhi's Gandhinagar and had improved the Congress party's performance in the East Delhi parliamentary constituency represented by former Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit's son, Sandeep. He also said that he took the decision to quit the Congress and join the BJP with a "lot of pain".

That much was clear the moment they traded for Blake Griffin on January 29 and embarked on their current five-game win streak. The Pistons play the Clippers, Atlanta (twice), and New Orleans in the next four games leading up to the ALl-Star Break.

Lovely's comeback can be seen as a big boost for the Congress ahead of by-polls to the 20 assembly seats in the national capital.

During his earlier stint with the Congress, Lovely held important portfolios such as education, tourism, urban development and transport as a minister.
