Bengaluru: Former MP C H Vijayashankar who was preparing ground to return to BJP has embraced the party on November 5.

Vijayashankar was welcomed into the party by State BJP President Nalin Kumar Kateel in the presence of Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa at the party office Jagannath Bhavan.

Vijayashankar a two time MP from BJP was also a MLA and MLC from the same party.

Following the developments that went against him in BJP, he had defected to Congress in 2017 with former chief minister Siddaramaiah playing a significant role in convincing Vijayashankar. He was also fielded as a Congress candidate in the Lok Sabha elections against sitting BJP MP Prathap Simha, but in vain.

Vijayashankar lost and was upset over the Congress leaders ignoring him.

A delegation of Congress leaders under the leadership of former MP R Dhruvanarayan had also met Vijayashankar to dissuade his plans to return to BJP.
