Patna | Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) chief Upendra Kushwaha on Monday 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 today Kushwaha announced that he won’t be participating in the meeting of NDA allies held before the start of the Parliament’s winter session on December 11.
According to sources, Kushwaha who is currently unhappy with the BJP over the sharing of seats for the Lok Sabha elections in Bihar announced his parties departure from the NDA. In a two-day Chintan Shivir of the RLSP being held in Bihar’s Motihari the party passed a 4 page resolution expressing a strong concern over many alleged objectionable and unnecessary decisions taken by the BJP and the central government in the recent past.
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”. Kushwaha had also raised speculations of switching camps when he met Sharad Yadav in November over his differences with Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.
