Patna | Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) chief and former Union Minister Upendra Kushwaha has blamed the arrogance of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for his exit from the National Democratic Alliance(NDA).
In an interview with news agency ANI, Kushwaha said,” People of NDA have become arrogant, particularly in the context of Bihar such as Nitish Kumar, who is also being supported by the key leadership of BJP. Their conceit was somewhere a big reason behind us getting away from them.”
Responding to LJP’s Chirag Paswan’s tweet over the displeasure on seat sharing in NDA after the exit of RLSP, Kushwaha said,” Lok Janshakti Party must also come out of alliance as soon as possible. These people have decided to destroy small parties and if LJP has also started to feel the same, they must exit the alliance at the earliest.”
Attacking the Bihar government over the failure of fulfilling the promises of people of Bihar, Kushwaha said,” “Janta Dal (United) and BJP have governed Bihar for about 13-14 years now. There were a lot of expectations from Nitish Kumar and this government. Education would improve, healthcare facilities for poor will get better, youth migration will stop but nothing as such happened.”
Taking a dig at BJP-JD(U) alliance in Bihar, the former Union Minister said,” It is good that if BJP is with them, they will also go down with them and both Bihar and the country would get a good government.”
Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) chief Upendra Kushwaha on December 10 resigned from his post of Union Minister (State) of Human Resources and Development ending the speculation of his party quitting the BJP led National Democratic Alliance (NDA). Earlier in November the RLSP chief expressing his grief over seat sharing in Bihar said that the BJP’s offer of seats to his party for the 2019 general election was “not respectable”.
