Former Union Minister Upendra Kushwaha has resigned from all positions within the Janta Dal United (JDU) and announced the formation of his own political organisation, the Rashtriya Lok Janta Dal. Kushwaha announced his resignation from Nitish Kumar’s JDU during a news conference held in Patna.
Kushwaha said, “Today, a new political inning begins. Almost every member of JD(U) was voicing worry… A meeting with elected colleagues resulted in a decision.”
He stated that Nitish Kumar performed tremendous work in the beginning, but that the route he embarked on was ultimately detrimental to him and Bihar.
Upendra Kushwaha, who is at odds with Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, is expected to announce the formation of a new political party on Monday afternoon in Patna, according to previous reports.
On February 19 and 20, Kushwaha organised a two-day open session of JDU workers in the city in which he solicited input from party members regarding future political strategy.
Upendra Kushwaha told ABP News that friends from all over Bihar will arrive, and he (Upendra Kushwaha) will make a decision based on their instructions. When asked about the future of the JDU under the current circumstances, Kushwaha stated that no one can prevent the JDU’s destruction.
