Ex-Union minister RCP Singh quits JD(U)

Ex-Union min RCP Singh on Saturday give up JD(U), alleging ‘conspiracy’ by these ‘envious’ of him. This comes a day after, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s JD(U) has sought a proof from Singh on severe allegations of corruption levelled in opposition to him by some employees of the social gathering. 

The social gathering employees have alleged that “large property” has been amassed between 2013 and 2022 in the name of Singh and his family members.

“You are well aware that our honourable leader (the CM) has been working with a policy of zero tolerance of corruption and he has remained untainted in his long political career,” Kushwaha mentioned within the letter, with which a replica of the written grievance in opposition to Singh by unnamed social gathering employees was enclosed.  

JD(U) parliamentary board president Upendra Kushwaha, who was approached by journalists for feedback, mentioned “It just isn’t correct to reveal who had made the allegations. But looking for a proof is so as. The social gathering will resolve the longer term plan of action based mostly on his reply”. 

Replying to a query, he said investigating agencies are “free to take suo motu cognizance of the matter which they must have come to know about through the media”. However, when requested whether or not the event signalled the top of the highway for the previous social gathering president, Kushwaha mentioned “that could be a political query. The social gathering just isn’t trying on the matter politically”. 

Earlier this yr, R C P Singh resigned from the Union Cabinet on Wednesday, a day earlier than the completion of their Rajya Sabha time period.
