Patna, Jan 19: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) MP Misa Bharti has said that she wanted to chop off Union Minister Ram Kripal Yadav’s hand when he joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

While addressing RJD workers at Vikram near Patna on January 16, she said when she “heard that Yadav is joining the BJP, then I felt like chopping off his hand…I was so angry inside”, reports in the local media said on Saturday.

Yadav, once considered close to Lalu Prasad and his family, joined the BJP in 2014. He contested and won the Lok Sabha poll from Patliputra constituency of Bihar defeating RJD candidate Bharti.
