Swing it like Sundar: Quits Congress, joins BJP and comes back to Congress by evening
This Congress leader from Karnataka resigned from the party in the morning, joined the BJP later and by evening he was back in the Congress.
Panemangaluru block Congress secretary Sundara Devinagara is the leader who played a 'swing' exercise on Saturday for reasons best known to him.
Sundara Devinagara was welcomed to the BJP at a function in the morning by U Rajesh Naik, who is to contest from Bantwal constituency against state Forests Minister B Ramanath Rai.
Naik handed over the BJP flag to Sundara during the function here.
In a sudden twist to the story, Sundara rejoined Congress at another programme held at Mani a few hours later, after apparently being cajoled by party leaders.
He was once again 'welcomed' back to the party at the function attended by leaders, including Prakash Shetty Thumbe, party sources said.
