Ahead of the assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, a former BJP MLA Sunil Mishra on Sunday joined the Congress in Madhya Pradesh. Mishra was welcomed to the Congress by its Madhya Pradesh chief Kamal Nath.
The development comes a day after Rahul Gandhi-led party’s Chattisgargh working president and MLA Ramdayal Uike joined the saffron party in presence of Amit Shah.
The elections dates for five states — Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Telangana and Mizoram — are out and many such political movements are expected ahead of the polls.

Madhya Pradesh will vote on November 28 while Chattisgarh will have votings in two phases: November 12 and 20. The results will be declared for all the five states on December 11.
