Ram Kripal Yadav joins BJP

RLD leader Ram Kripal Yadav today joins Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) in New Delhi in a press conference. Yadav, who used to be close to RJD chief Lalu Prasad, has been at odds with his party after the RJD chief's daughter Misa was named the candidate from the Partliputra seat. Yadav is presently the only RJD member in the Rajya Sabha. Mr. Yadav, who was upset at the RJD chief for nominating his daughter Misa Bharti from Patliputra, is likely to be fielded as the BJP’s candidate in the seat.
