Earlier on Sunday, Shatrughan Sinha said he decided to join the Congress because it was a national party in the "true sense". Besides, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav had recommended the same, he told PTI. Sinha is expected to formally join the Congress on April 6.

The 73-year-old politician had said earlier that it was painful for him to quit the BJP, but he was disturbed by the way the party treated veterans like LK Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi, Arun Shourie and Yashwant Sinha. The BJP has not fielded Advani and Joshi in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.
