Bihar Mahagathbandhan ally RLSP’s Sitamarhi MP quits, accuses party chief Kushwaha of selling Lok Sabha tickets

Ram Kumar Sharma has stated that he was denied an MP ticket by Kushwaha because he had opposed the 'suicidal' decision to leave the NDA.

The Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RSLP) suffered a major blow ahead of the Lok Sabha election as a sitting Member of Parliament (MP) of the party, Ram Kumar Sharma, has left the party to form a separate party of his own. The RSLP which is a part of the opposition parties alliance or Mahagathbandhan, was founded by Upendra Kushwaha, an MP from Karakat constituency, in March 2013.

Ram Kumar Sharma, who is an MP from Sitamarhi, accused Kushwaha of taking money for allotting tickets for the Lok Sabha elections. He said that Kushwaha is contesting from Ujiyarpur in addition to Karakat seat from where he is sitting MP because he was doubtful of his winning chances.

Sharma said that he has been denied the Lok Sabha ticket as he was against Kushwaha’s decision of quitting the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and had warned him against falling into the trap of Congress Party and Loktantrik Janata Dal (LJD) Party leader Sharad Yadav.

“He denied me a ticket because I tried to stop him whenever he took suicidal decisions like falling into the trap of the Congress and Sharad Yadav and quitting the NDA. He falsely accused Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar of using foul language against him”, said Sharma.

The Sitmarhi MP accused Kushwaha of taking money from three people for Motihari Lok Sabha constituency. Kushwaha allegedly took money from former General Secretary Pradeep Mishra and then he took money for the same seat from Madhav Anand and then ultimately he sold to the ticket to Akash Prasad Singh, who was not even a member of the party, as he paid the maximum price, accused Sharma.

It is notable here that in March, RLSP’s national general secretary Pradip Mishra had accused Kushwaha of taking Rs 90 lakhs from him for a Lok Sabha ticket. Mishra was expelled from the party.

Accusing Kushwaha of working in an undemocratic manner by neglecting the party workers, Sharma said that Kushwaha also sold the Betia seat to JD(U) leader Brajesh Kushwaha without calling a meeting of Parliamentary board and later gave him primary membership of the party.

Sharma said that he will not be contesting the election but he will campaign for the NDA candidate so that Narendra Modi becomes the Prime Minister again. Previously, MP Arun Kumar and MLA Lalan Paswan have left the party too. Ram Kumar Sharma has stated that Bihar CM Nitish Kumar had announced developmental programmes for Sitamarhi and Kushwaha did not want Sitamarhi MP Ram Kumar Sharma to become popular.
