RP Sharma to join JD(U) on August 24
Amid speculations, former Tezpur MP Ram Prasad Sharma will formally join the Janata Dal (United) on August 24. According to sources, Sharma will join the JD(U) in Guwahati in presence of its General Secretary KC Tyagi.
Earlier, he met senior JD(U) leaders in New Delhi to discuss the political scenario in Assam.
It may be mentioned here that the former BJP leader was enraged with the party’s decision of not choosing him for the Tezpur constituency seat in the Lok Sabha elections, which led him to resign from the saffron party. In a Facebook post, Sharma wrote that he felt insulted when his name did not find a place in the shortlisted panel of candidates for the Lok Sabha elections.
