According to sources, a grand reception is being organised at the BJP office in Bhopal and a large number of people have been invited to welcome him.
Scindia, who had been in the Congress for 18 years, joined the BJP on Wednesday in presence of its president JP Nadda and slammed his former party for “denying reality” and “not acknowledging” new thoughts and new leadership.
