Bihar crisis: Former BJP MP ‘unhappy’ with the party, quits; may join Mahagathbandhan ahead of Lok Sabha Election

Ahead of Lok Sabha Election, political crisis can be witness across the country. Recently, a former BJP parliamentarian announced his resignation from the party on Friday. The Ex-BJP MP Uday Singh, who represented Bihar’s Purnea Lol Sabha constituency twice, alleged the saffron party has surrendered before the discredited Janata Dal (United) headed by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

Singh alleged that party cadre were ‘apalled’ over ruling BJP willing to share power with Nitish Kumar in Bihar, despite ‘sour’ past experiences between the two parties. "His (Nitish Kumar) government is rapidly losing goodwill. Now the BJP will end up sharing the blame for his misdeeds," Mr Singh said.

"And as if that was not enough he was given such a massive share of seats," he added. However, Singh didn’t disclosed his future move, though he threw enough hints of him joing the ‘Mahagathbandhan.”

"I never approved of the slogan of Congress-mukt Bharat. A democracy cannot survive if the opposition is wiped out. It will degenerate into a totalitarian regime," Singh said. "I have had no talks with Rahul Gandhi or Lalu Prasad. But I am looking forward to speaking to them after taking my supporters into confidence," Singh further added.

Singh also claimed widespread resentment among the BJP workers over the alleged undemocratic style of the party leadership.

"It is so difficult to meet BJP president Amit Shah. Upendra Kushwaha kept requesting for an appointment, which was never given, and he ultimately had to resign from the Union council of ministers and quit the NDA in sheer disappointment," Singh claimed.
