Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) leader Abhishek Chaudhary Gurjar, who viewed the party ticket from the Khatauli seat in the assembly, joined the BJP on Tuesday.

Gurjar, who was the RLD’s national spokesman, joined the BJP at BJP President Bhupendra Singh Chaudhary’s residence in Lucknow.

Sources said Gurjar was angry with the RLD leadership who gave former MLA Madan Bhaiya a ticket to the Khatauli seat.

The election was necessitated after BJP MLA Vikram Saini was convicted and sentenced by a special court in connection with a case related to the 2013 Muzaffarnagar riots.

In parliamentary elections earlier this year, Vikram Saini defeated RLD’s Rajpal Saini by 16,345 votes.

Madan Bhaiya had fought the last Assembly poll on an RLD ticket from Loni in Ghaziabad but lost to the BJP’s incumbent MLA, Nand Kishore Gurjar.

The BJP has named Rajkumari Saini, wife of Vikram Saini, from Khatauli seat.

BJP state president Chaudhary said his party would be strengthened with the accession of the RLD leader.
