Bihar Education Minister and senior RJD leader Chandra Shekhar’s elder brother Ram Chandra Prasad Yadav has joined the BJP, saying Lalu Prasad’s party did “nothing” for the upliftment of Dalits and marginalised.
Yadav joined the saffron camp on Friday at the state unit headquarters in Patna in the presence of senior party leaders. After joining the saffron party, Yadav told reporters, if the BJP gives him a ticket from the Madhepura assembly seat, which is currently represented by his younger brother, he will definitely contest against the RJD from there.
“The RJD did nothing for the upliftment of Dalits and the deprived sections of the society, while Prime Minister Narendra Modi did a lot for them,” he claimed. Chandra Shekhar is a three-time MLA from Madhepura.
