RJD rebel and Rajya Sabha MP Ram Kripal Yadav is all set to join BJP today. Yadav had rebelled after RJD chief Lalu Prasad made his daughter party nominee from Pataliputra.
Sources said though Yadav has initial hiccups to join because of his “secular” image, he reportedly took the decision to take the battle to RJD camp. BJP has reportedly succeeded in wooing Nawal Kishore Yadav to leave his claims over Pataliputra seat and offer it to Ramkripal.
