Ex-cabinet minister in the UPA government and Dalit rights activist Krishna Tirath is likely to rejoin the Congress party, with Delhi Congress chief Sheila Dikshit telling The Indian Express: “She has expressed willingness to rejoin the party and written a letter to the high command. A decision will be taken soon.”
When contacted, Tirath refused to comment. “I have nothing to say right now,” she said. Tirath had contested the 2015 Delhi Assembly polls from a BJP ticket, but had lost to the AAP candidate.
