They expressed gratitude to the BJP leadership, particularly Prime Minister Narendra Modi, for welcoming them into the fold during what they described as a time of uncertainty. Lovely's return to the BJP marks his second stint with the party, having briefly rejoined the Congress in 2018 after initially leaving the BJP.
