Welcomed

Durgavva Shashikanth Bijawad, who won as independent candidate from Ward No 69 of Hubballi Dharwad Municipal Corporation, was welcomed into the party by giving her the party flag. The BJP had expelled Durgavva Bijawad’s husband Shashikanth Bijawad, an office-bearer, following her candidature as an Independent in the elections.

However after her election, the party has revoked its decision and welcomed both the husband and wife into the party.
