constituency in Allahabad Dharmraj Patel today joined the Samajwadi Party.
"Patel, who was MP in the 13th Lok Sabha between 1999 to 2004 from Phoolpur, joined the party expressing faith in the policies of SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav," party spokesman Rajendra Yadav said.
Earlier, Congress had given Patel ticket from Phoolpur in 2009 after he was refused to be fielded from there by the SP.
Patel was also an office-bearer of the SP, Yadav said.
Meanwhile, SP national general secretary Ramgopal Yadav has revoked expulsion of former MLA from Mainpuri Manik Chandra Yadav.
