Patna, Feb. 11 -- Three-time Darbhanga MP Kirti Azad is likely to join the Congress in Delhi on?February 15, said a senior party leader on Sunday.

The 60-year-old former cricketer, who was suspended from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in 2015 for anti-party activities, will also stake his claim to the all-important Darbhanga parliamentary seat. The constituency has traditionally seen a fight between the BJP and the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD).

Azad will join the party in the presence of senior Congress leaders. However, the Congress leader did not elaborate if the RJD had agreed to part with the seat. The RJD and Congress have decided to fight the Lok Sabha?polls together, though the seat-sharing arrangement is yet to be finalised.?
