Ansari, 12 other RJD MLAs desert Lalu, to join Janata Dal (U)
Monday February 24, 2014 8:17 PM, IANS

Thirteen of the 22 legislators of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) Monday said they were no longer with the party. Party chief Lalu Prasad said he will talk to the MLAs as communalism was a threat to India.

Assembly member Javed Ansari told IANS that he along with 12 other legislators signed the letter that was submitted to Speaker Uday Narain Choudhary, who accepted it.

Asked about the split in the party, Lalu Prasad said: "We are finding out the facts, I have heard about it but it's not all true."

"Communalism is a threat to the country. I would suggest to the MLAs not to quit the party. We will talk to them," he said.

The rebel members requested the speaker to allot them separate seats in the assembly.

Ansari said they would soon join the ruling Janata-Dal United.
