New Delhi: Rebel RJD leader Ram Kripal Yadav today met top BJP leaders in the national capital amid indications that he would cross over to saffron ranks ahead of Lok Sabha polls.

Yadav, a former close aide of RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, met BJP President Rajnath Singh and party leader Ravi Shankar Prasad at the Delhi airport, giving rise to speculation that he would soon join the BJP.  

An announcement to this effect is expected to be made in a day or so.

What remains to be seen is whether the BJP agrees to accommodate Yadav in the Pataliputra Lok Sabha seat of Bihar, a seat yoga guru Ramdev is said to have sought for one of his own aides.

Ram Kripal Yadav said he would comment on the developments only tomorrow.
