Lucknow: The Trinamool Congress's sole legislator in Uttar Pradesh on Saturday joined the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and also announced the merger of his party with it.

He also sent a similar letter to the BSP supremo Mayawati who later okayed his entry into the party fold. Sharma is a seven-time legislator who has been continuously elected from Mant in Mathura since 1989.

He is counted as one of the top leaders of western UP but has been a political grasshopper. He had contested the 2009 Lok Sabha polls as a BSP candidate but had contested the 2012 state assembly polls as an independent. He later joined the Trinamool.
