Three MLAs of Grand Alliance join BJP

Patna, Feb 27 (UNI) Three MLAs of the Grand Alliance, two from Congress and one from RJD, joined the BJP, giving another jerk to the alliance on Tuesday, as the earlier one was on February 12, when three RJD MLAs shifted their loyalties.
Former Bihar Minister and Congress MLA Murari Gautam, another Congress MLA Siddharth, and RJD MLA Sangita Kumari joined the BJP at a function organized at state party headquarters.
After three MLAs of the Grand Alliance joined the BJP, Deputy Chief Minister and senior party leader Samrat Chaudhary said that RJD leader Tejaswi Prasad Yadav had claimed to engineer a split in the NDA, but what was going on was for all to see. MLAs were deserting the Grand Alliance one after the other, and many more would follow, he pointed out.
