BJP’s Delhi President and MP, Manoj Tiwari, was present at the function held at the party headquarters. Also present were MP Vijay Goel and former Delhi President of the BJP, Satish Upadhyay.

A tweet by the BJP read, “Shri @KapilMishra_IND and Smt @richapandey from AAP along with their supporters joined BJP in the presence of State President Shri @ManojTiwariMP, National Vice President and BJP Delhi’s Prabhari Shri @ShyamSJaju
and other senior leaders.”

Kapil Mishra had taken to his social media page on Friday to announce that he was formally joining the BJP on Saturday. After formally joining the BJP, Kapil Mishra wrote on Twitter, “I am now a Proud BJP member. Follower of @narendramodi.”

Mishra had won an AAP ticket from Delhi’s Karawal Nagar assembly seat in 2015. Although his has fallen vacant, the Election Commission is unlikely to hold elections since the next assembly polls in Delhi is scheduled in less than six months’ time.
