Cricketer-turned-politician suspended BJP MLA Kirti Azad is all set to join hands with Congress on February 15, as per media reports. The three-time Member of Parliament from Darbhanga, Bihar, is expected to join Congress ahead of the upcoming elections in presence of the party president Rahul Gandhi.
The BJP had suspended Kirti Azad back in December 2015 who had been making public statements that there was corruption in the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) when Union Minister Arun Jaitley was heading it. Hours before he was suspended, another rebel BJP leader, Shatrughan Sinha had also come out in his support and demanded that Jaitley come out clean regarding the allegations.
Recently, when Congress President Rahul Gandhi had again used a maliciously cropped dissent note to accuse the Prime Minister to have indulged in corruption over the Rafale deal, Azad had come out in support of Congress President Rahul Gandhi and helped him spread the fake narrative.
Earlier, it was reported that Azad was also in touch with Aam Aadmi Party leadership who also wanted him to contest elections from an Aam Aadmi Party ticket.
