Singh was kicked out of the BJP for six years after he rebuffed the orders of the party high command to take back his nomination from Barmer.

However, after losing by a margin of over 87,000 against BJP’s candidate Sonaram Chowdhury, the 77-year old veteran is now eyeing a second comeback in the saffron party.

He was earlier expelled from the party in 2009 after his controversial book sang praises of Mohammad Ali Jinnah – the founding father of Pakistan.

He was taken back into the party fold after ten months on the insistence of his long time colleague Advani, whom he met on Friday morning.

No concrete reports about what was discussed in the meeting between the two veteran leaders has come out yet but speculations are rife that Singh is keen to get back in the party fold after his rebellion ended in a public ignominy for him.

Singh had expressed his sadness over being expelled from the party in March but now reports suggest that he has realized his mistake and is keen to take up a role in Narendra Modi-led Cabinet.
