PATNA: Janata Dal (United) leader Upendra Kushwaha, who has opened a front against his own party in Bihar, has announced a new party ‘Rashtriya Lok Janata Dal’.
Kushwaha, who recently raised a banner of revolt against Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, resigned from all posts along with priority membership of Janata Dal United Party.
He also announced his new political party in Bihar. There is barely any possibility that Kushwaha may revive his erstwhile party, Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP), which he had merged with the JD (U) in March 2021.
Kushwaha, chairman of the parliamentary board of the Janata Dal (United), was continuously attacking Nitish for the last few days.

Addressing a press conference in Patna, Kushwaha said,”A new political inning begins today. Barring a few, everyone in the JDU was expressing concern…meeting was held with elected colleagues and decision was taken.” “Nitish Kumar did good in beginning but in the end, the path on which he started walking is bad for him and Bihar,” Kushwaha said.
“I joined Janata Dal (U). It was said that Upendra Kushwaha kept his party RSLP alive. This is an utter lie, he added.
He said, “We had said that we will not go like this – we will take our share. But now it seems that what is the share of what, what does Nitish ji have, whose share – Nitish ji has mortgaged all the property. ,
“Nitish Kumar himself is not taking any decision today – the people of the neighborhood have surrounded him, the CM is acting on his advice, said in a press conference.”
