Kushwaha's Rashtriya Lok Samta Party (RSLP), which was earlier a member of the NDA, had won 2 seats in the 2015 Assembly elections in Bihar
The former Union minister's joining the UPA is likely to give a boost to the formation of a grand alliance in Bihar to counter the NDA combine of Bhartiya Janata Party-Janata Dal(U)-Lok Janshakti Party.
A senior Rashtriya Lok Samta Party (RLSP) leader said talks between his party and the UPA constituents are almost final and an announcement by Kushwaha on joining it is likely to be made at a press conference on Thursday.
Kushwaha had severed his ties with the BJP and tendered his resignation accusing the Prime Minister of reducing the cabinet to a "rubber stamp", "betraying" backward classes and giving Bihar only "jumlas".
Kushwaha announced his resignation this morning, saying Prime Minister Narendra Modi failed to fulfil aspirations of the people and he was "dejected" and "betrayed" by his leadership.
The meeting with Rahul Gandhi could possibly result in RLSP joining hands with the Mahagathbandhan in Bihar that includes Lalu Prasad's Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and the Congress.
RLSP sources had hinted on December 5 that the party was likely to sever ties with the NDA government and a formal announcement would be made on December 6.
The leader said on condition of anonymity that Kushwaha is also likely to put in his papers as union minister.
The Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) chief on November 25 sought the prime minister's intervention to resolve the seat-sharing issue in Bihar NDA.
He declined to comment on queries of journalists, who approached him at the airport where he boarded a flight to New Delhi, regardimg fate of the seat-sharing after he publically declined the BJP offer of "unrespectable" number of seats to his party Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) in Bihar.
Kushwaha claimed that during one of their interactions, Nitish had told him that after being in power for 15 years, he does not want to continue any longer
"When we think it necessary, we will speak to you (media) about it (alliance and seat-sharing)," Kushwaha told reporters at his party officer.
Kushwaha, an erstwhile confidant of Nitish Kumar, had floated the RLSP after quitting JD(U) in 2013.
A section of media had recently reported that an arrangement had been made between the BJP and its allies for the 2019 elections.
In an interview to a news channel here, Kushwaha said Kumar had served as chief minister for close to 15 years and the time had come for him to consider "giving somebody else a chance".
