Independent MLA joins BJP in MP

4 May 2018

Independent MLA Dinesh Rai, who represents Seoni Assembly constituency in Madhya Pradesh, has joined the ruling BJP, office-bearers of the party said today. Rai, who is known among the locals as 'Munmun', joined the saffron party late on Thursday night. "Dinesh Rai 'Munmun' has joined the BJP in the presence of the state BJP president Rakesh Singh," party spokesman Rajnish Agrawal said. The move comes ahead of BJP chief Amit Shah's arrival in the state. Shah is scheduled to address a state-level meeting of BJP workers and office-bearers at Dusshera Maidan in Bhopal today. Both Rai and Rakesh Singh belong to Mahakaushal region in the state. Newly-appointed Madhya Pradesh Congress chief and Chhindwara MP Kamal Nath also hails from this region.
