Lok Sabha member Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav, who was expelled from Lalu Prasad’s RJD for six years for anti-party activities, is likely to join the BJP-led NDA ahead of the Bihar assembly polls.

Asked by the media about joining the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), Pappu Yadav, who was acquitted in the murder of a CPI-M leader in 2013, said: “Talks are going on… results would be positive, but it has not been finalised yet.”

Pappu Yadav, who launched his own political party — Jan Kranti Adhikar Party — will join the NDA on July 8, a leader of his party said.

According to sources, Pappu Yadav — the Lok Sabha member from Madhepura — has already held two rounds of talks with BJP president Amit Shah in New Delhi over joining the NDA.
