Lucknow: In a setback to Bhartiya Janta
Party, two of its members in the Uttar Pradesh Legislative
Council, Rakesh Pratap Singh and Manish Jaiswal, on Saturday joined
the ruling Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP).

While Rakesh Pratap Singh represents Rae Bareli,
Manish Jaiswal is an MLC from Basti and their term in the
upper house will expire on January 15 next year, BSP sources
said here.

"The two MLCs joined BSP this morning and said they
will be dedicated workers," party sources said.

The two leaders were unhappy over the BJP`s "communal
ideology and divisive politics", they said.
