After split from NDA, Upendra Kushwaha joins hands with Mahagathbandhan


Patna:  Former Union minister RSLP leader Upendra Kushwaha’s on Thursday joined hands with the Mahagathbandhan after breaking away from the BJP-led NDA.

Talks between Kushwaha and UPA constituents had reportedly been taking place since RLSP formally broke ties with BJP earlier this month. The UPA believes Kushwaha joining forces will help in building momentum against NDA in Bihar. “It’s a matter of happiness that Upendra Kushwaha is joining the mahagathbandhan,” said Congress leader Ahmed Patel after a meeting which was attended by him, Kushwaha, RJD’s Tejashwi Yadav and Hindustan Awam Morcha leader Jitan Ram Manjhi.

Last week, Kushwaha had accused NDA of not fulfilling promises made to the people of Bihar. “Narendra Modi ji couldn’t meet the expectations of the people of Bihar. Nothing was done for special status,” he had said, adding that Bihar CM Nitish Kumar should share the blame as well.

The RLSP chief was reportedly upset with the BJP central leadership over the distribution of seats for 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
