Upendra Kushwaha likely to break alliance with NDA today


New Delhi: Upendra Kushwaha, president of the Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP), which became part of the Narendra Modi-led National Democratic Alliance in Bihar in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections five years ago, may not be with the NDA in the 2019 elections. Kushwaha can formally announce separation from NDA on Thursday.

Kushwaha gave the ultimatum to the BJP till November 30. But the party has not given any importance. Kushwaha’s deadline has been completed. It is believed that Kushwaha’s party can now decide to separate from the NDA.

A leader of RLSP told that Upendra Kushwaha could be separated from NDA and apart from Modi government. There is speculation that he may resign from the post of Union minister on Thursday. Tell you that Kushwaha is now the Minister of State for Human Resource Development at the Center. A leader of RLSP said that Kushwaha’s resignation is merely a formality that will be done after visiting Delhi and meeting with the Prime Minister.

RLSP had sharply criticized the Center’s Narendra Modi government and the Nitish Kumar government in Bihar on Wednesday. Kushwaha has been authorized to take political decisions in the party’s contemplation camp in Valmiki Nagar.

The party leader said that with the tough approach of RLSP it became clear that our alliance was with NDA, which is now over. He said that being RLSP in NDA meant that there was an alliance with BJP and LJP. We have no coalition with Nitish Kumar’s JDU. He has joined the coalition last year, while we are part of the NDA since 2014.
