As Marandi merges JVM with BJP in Ranchi, two of his MLAs 'merged' party with Cong in Delhi

As Marandi merges JVM with BJP in Ranchi, two of his MLAs 'merged' party with Cong in Delhi

New Delhi, Feb 17 (UNI) Hours after Babulal Marandi merged his Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (Prajatantrik) with BJP in Ranchi, in the presence of Home Minister Amit Shah, two of his MLAs on Monday joined Congress party in the national capital.

JVM MLAs Pradeep Yadav and Bandhu Tirkey have 'merged' JVM(P) with Congress, as they claimed that they have the majority against Mr Marandi, who is the third MLA of the party, in the recently concluded Jharkhand assembly.

"On March 1, JVM's top leaders will join the Congress party at a ceremony. We have requested Rahul Gandhi to address this ceremony, and he has accepted", said RPN Singh, party general secretary in-charge of Jharkhand.

He also said that yesterday, JVM had a meeting under the leadership of both the MLAs and they have decided to merge JVM with Congress, which has also been accepted by the Congress President.

Earlier this month, Mr Marandi had expelled Mr Yadav and Mr Tirkey from the party after the latter met with the Congress leadership.

While rejecting Mr Shah's allegation that Congress had poached JVM MLAs, RPN Singh said that there are three MLAs of JVM-P in the House and two are joining the Congress including the legislature party leader Pradeep Yadav."

Mr Surjewala, while rejecting the Home Minister's allegation, said that everybody knows who is poaching MLAs and added that "Mr Shah is the Vice Chancellor of poaching university".
