Bengaluru: Former Janata Dal (Secular) Secretary General Abdul Nazeem, who recently quit the party, is likely to join Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday.
The former police officer had submitted his resignation to party's national president HD Deve Gowda on November 2 and announced his decision to join BJP on November 5.
Azeem has been vocal about criticising former CM HD Kumaraswamy and his style of functioning.
He also expressed his opinion during the audio CD controversy involving Kumaraswamy where the former chief minister purportedly discussed cash-for-seat with supporters of an MLC seat aspirant.
Azeem had also protested for not being inducted into the newly constituted core committee of JD(S).
