Day after Bihar seat sharing deal, Nitish Kumar-led Janata Dal-United (JD-U) legislator Shyam Bahadur Singh resigned from the party on Momday from party's primary membership in capital Patna. Singh, who represents the Barharia constituency said his voice was not being heard by those in power while the district administration has also turned a deaf ear.
"I have resigned from JD-U as neither district administration officers in Siwan nor the top brass of the government in Patna listen to my genuine complaints. What pains me is that police has been acting against all those people opposing auction of the government land to land mafia," Mr Singh said.
Being critical for the party, Singh questioned the much-hyped governance and rule of law claim made by the Nitish Kumar-led government. He also raised the auction of government land to alleged land mafia despite opposition from people in Siwan district.
