"Four rebel JD-U legislators -- Gayanendra Singh Gayanu, Rajeshwar Raj, Dinesh Kushwaha and Suresh Chanchal -- have joined the BJP," party leader Sanjay Mayunkh said.

Gayanendra Singh was considered close to Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar before he revolted against him last year. The JD-U had suspended them for involvement in "anti-party activities".

According to BJP leaders here, some more JD-U legislators are expected to join the BJP ahead of the assembly polls scheduled for later this year.
