Former minister Anand Singh joins Congress

Former BJP MLA from Vijayanagara constituency in Ballari district Anand Singh  on Wednesday  joined the Congress ahead of the crucial Assembly elections.

State Congress president G Parameshwara formally inducted Singh into the party. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, KPCC working presidents, Dinesh Gundu Rao and S R Patil, were also present on the occasion.

Singh, who was a close associate of the Ballari Reddy brothers of the BJP, had distanced himself from the saffron party after Tipu Sultan Jayanti celebrations a few months ago. The Congress is learnt to have assured Singh to give the ticket to contest the coming elections from Vijayanagara.  

Singh recently resigned as the BJP MLA.
