PATNA: In a huge blow to the ruling coalition, the Hindustani Awam Morcha (HAM) today quit the NDA and announced to join the Grand Alliance.
HAM is headed by former Bihar chief minister Jitan Ram Manjhi.
“Have pulled out of the NDA…joining the Grand Alliance,” Manjhi told the media in Patna on Wednesday.
RJD leader and Bihar opposition leader Tejashwi Yadav welcomed Manjhi to the Grand Alliance.
Manjhi was angry after his party was denied the Jehanabad seat to contest and instead JDU was asked to contest the bypoll.
