Patna, Oct 7 RJD chief Lalu Prasad's high-profile brother-in-law Anirudh Prasad alias Sadhu Yadav and former CLP leader Vijay Shankar Dubey figure in Congress' list of candidates for Bihar assembly polls released tonight.
Sadhu Yadav, who was a RJD MP between 2004 and 2009, has been nominated for Gopalganj constituency, PCC spokesman Ajit Pratap Singh told PTI.
Sadhu parted ways with RJD after he was not given nomination for West Champaran Lok Sabha constituency in general election in 2009 and joined Congress. He had unsuccessfully fought the LS poll on a Congress ticket. Prior to becoming MP, Sadhu was RJD MLA from Gopalganj. Dubey has been given nomination for Daronda constituency.
Singh said the list also contains the name of former minister Bharat Singh who has been fielded from Lalganj constituency against ruling JD(U) candidate Anu Shukla, wife of convicted party MLA Vijay Kumar Shukla alias Una Shukla. PTI
