New Delhi: Darbhanga MP Kirti Azad on Monday joined Congress in presence of party president Rahul Gandhi. Former Indian cricketer and politician Kirti Azad was earlier slated to join the Congress party on February 15 but it was postponed in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack.
Kirti Azad is the son of former Chief Minister of Bihar Bhagwat Jha Azad and followed the paths of his father joining the Bharatiya Janata Party. He was elected as an MP from Darbhanga, Bihar.
