New Delhi (India) Mar 2 (ANI): Ex-Cabinet Minister in the UPA regime and Dalit rights activist Krishna Tirath is likely to rejoin the Congress Party, sources said.
Tirath on Saturday met former Delhi Chief Minister and veteran Congress leader Sheila Dixit in the national capital and reportedly showed her willingness to rejoin the party.
This comes at a time when Dixit is aiming to strengthen the Delhi unit of the party ahead of the Lok Sabha polls.
Tirath, who had been a Minister of State (MoS) in the cabinet of Manmohan Singh government, had joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in 2015. 
Under the aegis of the BJP, Tirath had contested Delhi Assembly polls in February that year from Patel Nagar seat. However, she was defeated by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Hazari Lal Chauhan. (ANI)
