Patna: Senior RJD MLA Ramdas Rai died of
renal failure at a hospital in New Delhi last evening, family
sources said on Friday.

Eai, who was injured in a road accident while returning to
Patna from Chapra a fortnight ago, was 67.

Rai is survived by his widow, four daughters and a son.

Rai, a five-time MLA from Taraiya assembly constituency
in Saran, was recently shifted to a hospital in New Delhi

Narain Choudhary, besides RJD boss Lalu Prasad, his LJP
counterpart Ramvilas Paswan and leader of opposition in the
