Scindia also paid a "courtesy" visit to senior BJP leader and defence minister Rajnath Singh at his residence in New Delhi.

 

After meeting Scindia, Shah said in a tweet, "I am sure his induction into the party will further strengthen BJP's resolve to serve the people of Madhya Pradesh."

A day after quitting the Congress, Scindia joined the ruling BJP on Wednesday in the presence of its president JP Nadda and slammed his former party for "denying reality" and "not acknowledging" new thoughts and new leadership.
