| | Lucknow | in Lucknow

Former Samajwadi Party MLC Sarojini Agarwal joined the Bharatiya Janata Party in Lucknow on Saturday. She was welcomeed to the party by Deputy CM and state BJP chief Keshav Prasad Maurya.

On 4 August, Agarwal had resigned from Legislative Council maintaining that she was not feeling comfortable as senior leader Mulayam Singh Yadav was being ignored.

“I had been a party MLC twice due to Netaji (Mulayam). As he is not active in the party, I have resigned. I don’t have problems with anyone and I respect everyone. I felt uncomfortable after the split in the party and did not feel like working any longer,” she had said after quitting SP. 

On Wednesday, SP MLC Ashok Bajpai resigned from the membership of UP Legislative Council and also from the party. He too is likely to join the BJP.
