Tejashwi Yadav invites BJP ally RLSP to join the ‘mahagathbandhan’, gets snubbed

In yet another attempt to unite various opposition forces, Tejaswini Yadav has issued an invitation to Minister Upendra Kushwaha to quit the NDA and join hands with the opposition. The Union Minister rejected the proposal of RJD leader immediately and said that RJD was trying to create an issue since they don’t have anything else to talk about.

It is said that Upendra Kushwaha has ambitions to be the NDA’s Chief Ministerial candidate in the next elections. He is trying to capitalise the caste of Kushwahas, who comprise about 10 percent in the state of Bihar. The minister had not attended the NDA dinner meet and also arranged Iftar parties, the absence was seen as some sort of disturbance in his engagement with NDA.

The Union Minister said that the NDA is united and there’s no question of him going anywhere. “RJD’s credibility in the society in the opposition is over. That’s why to find some plank to stay relevant, they are saying these things. For me, their statements have no meaning. For the good of the nation, Narendra Modi needs to stay the Prime Minister of India,” he said.

Earlier on Sunday, at a party meeting, Tejashwi Yadav had said the NDA is giving “step-motherly treatment” to Mr Kushwaha.

“The BJP, along with Nitish Kumar, tried to spit your party. You come from a larger OBC caste, but despite that no one was made cabinet minister, while from one caste, there are more than a dozen cabinet ministers,” Tejaswini Yadav said.

Earlier, former chief minister Jitan Ram Manjhi, who was part of the NDA also joined the alliance of the opposition parties. He also urged Kuswaha to join the alliance. Tejaswini Yadav also spoke about whether  Kushawaha would accept his proposal, “It is for him to take a decision. If he wishes to come with us, we will think over the matter.” On Sunday, at a party conference in Patna, Tejashwi Yadav said, “The choice is yours. Either choose Gandhi-Ambedkar or Godse-Golwalker”.

It was also reported that there is a sense of rift in RJD, as the elder son of the Lalu Yadav, Tej Pratap Yadav said that he was upset about the rift and has decided to retire, but soon retracted from his own statements and said he is here to stay.
