RLSP's Lok Sabha leader revolts against Upendra Kushwaha

Kumar launched the attack on Kushwaha, a day after the latter dissolved the party's Bihar unit headed by the Jahanabad MP.

New Delhi: Raising a banner of revolt, RLSP's Lok Sabha leader Arun Kumar today accused the party chief and Union Minister Upendra Kushwaha of running the organisation in undemocratic and autocratic style.

RLSP, a Bihar based party, has three MPs in the Lower House and a part of the ruling NDA.

Kumar launched the attack on Kushwaha, a day after the latter dissolved the party's Bihar unit headed by the Jahanabad MP.

Kumar claimed the party's Bihar unit was to discuss major issues, including some pertaining to shoddy appointments in the organisation, prompting Kushwaha to dissolve it.

"Yesterday, I got a call from Upendra Kushwaha saying the Bihar unit has been dissolved. This has been done in a very arbitrary manner by Kushwaha and his coterie," he said.

Asked about his future course of action, Kumar said he will be meeting party workers in Patna before making a move. "Let the party workers decide it."

Accusing the RLSP leadership of turning the party into a "shop", Kumar claimed people are appointed at posts without any proper background check or consultations.
"A fodder scam accused was appointed as party's Bihar president but it was undone after protests from party workers," Kumar said.
