According to ANI, the other members who have been expelled by the party are Dilip Chaudhury, Tanvir Akhtar and Ram Chandra Bharti.

"People like us who worked for the party were sidelined. The four of us have decided that we are bidding goodbye to the party and going to JD(U)," Ashok was quoted as saying by ANI.

Lauding Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, the former Bihar Congress chief said, "We sincerely believe he is one of the finest leaders."

Earlier in the day, Jitan Ram Manjhi's Hindustani Awam Morcha (HAM) severed its ties with the Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and decided to join the Congress-Rashtyriya Janata Dal Mahagathbandhan in the state.
