Former Uttar Pradesh ministers Swami Prasad Maurya and Dharam Singh Saini - who resigned this week from the Yogi Adityanath government and the ruling BJP less than 30 days before Assembly polls - today joined the Samajwadi Party in the presence of opposition leader Akhilesh Yadav.

On Wednesday, Mr Maurya - an influential OBC leader earlier with Mayawati's BSP - told NDTV "all will be revealed on January 14" when asked about furious speculation over his political future.
