Patna, Aug 12 (IANS) A fortnight after he quit the BJP, former spokesman Ram Kishore Singh Monday joined the ruling Janata Dal-United (JD-U) in the presence of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

Ram Kishore Singh resigned from the Bharatiya Janata Party 13 days after his removal as spokesman for questioning Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's popularity.

On Monday, he joined the JD-U along with Ravinder Nandan, another former BJP leader.

"We have joined the JD-U to strengthen the hands of Nitish Kumar for Bihar's development," he told the media here.
