Patna: Former MLA Md Nemtullah on Saturday resigned from the post of the vice-president of the state JD(U) and also from its primary membership and switched over to RJD with his supporters.
Angry over denial of a party ticket, Nemtullah said he had resigned from the primary membership of the party and joined the RJD of Lalu Prasad who assured him of giving him a party symbol to contest from Barauli assembly constituency in Gopalganj.

He accused Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and the ruling party of "neglecting minorities" in allotment of party tickets.

Nemtullah said his supporters also joined the RJD in presence of its Secretary General Ramkripal Yadav and its senior leader Ramchandra Purve.
