Jagadish Shettar Returns to BJP

Earlier on Thursday, the re-joining of former Karnataka Chief Minister, Jagadish Shettar, to BJP marked another unexpected turn of events for the Congress in the state ahead of the legislative elections in 2023.

At an event held in the national capital, Shettar made his rejoining official in the presence of prominent leaders such as BS Yediyurappa, Union Minister Bhupender Singh Yadav, Karnataka BJP president Vijayendra Yediyurappa, and Union Minister of State Rajeev Chandrasekhar.

Shettar’s Homecoming to BJP

Jagadish Shettar expressed happiness on his return to the BJP, describing the party as his “home”. He also mentioned his fruitful discussions with national leaders such as Amit Shah and JP Nadda, as well as the state leaders.

Responding to questions regarding his take on the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, the former Chief Minister confirmed that he would follow directions from the high command.

Response from BJP

Veteran BJP leader BS Yediyurappa welcomed Jagdish Shettar back to the party, acknowledging that the latter had been contemplating rejoining for some time. Yediyurappa further remarked on Shettar’s unconditional return to the party following a meeting with Amit Shah.

Speculations were rife about Shettar’s return to BJP for several days, and his rejoining has put a rest to these rumors.
