New Delhi: Ending months of speculation, expelled SP leaders Amar Singh and Jaya Prada today joined the Ajit Singh-led Rashtriya Lok Dal ahead of Lok Sabha polls.
Singh is tipped to contest Lok Sabha polls from Fatehpur while Jaya Prada could enter the electoral fray from Bijnore.
Addressing a press conference at RLD chief Ajit Singh's residence-cum-office, Singh said he was not joining RLD for electoral politics.
"I and Jaya Prada undertook a 1000 km long padyatra in eastern UP despite both my kidneys failing," he said.
"I realised that development of UP cannot be done without its bifurcation.Ajit Singh has always supported the formation of Harit Pradesh, which is very important. The kind of clarity that Ajit Singh has about creation of states like Poorvanchal, Bundelkhand and Harit Pradesh is lacking in leaders of major parties," Singh said.
