Upendra Kushwaha joins grand alliance

New Delhi: Rashtriya Lok Samta Party (RLSP) Upendra Kushwaha, who resigned from the Union council of ministers earlier this month, joined Congress-led ‘mahagathbandhan’ in Bihar on Thursday.

Kushwaha joined the grand alliance at the Congress headquarters in the national capital in the presence of senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel, RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav, Loktantrik Janata Dal chief Sharad Yadav and other senior leaders from Bihar.

Speaking about his entry into the anti-BJP fold, Kushwaha said, “The wholeheartedness shown by Rahul Gandhi and Lalu Yadav is one of the reasons I joined opposition alliance, but the biggest reason I’m here is the people of Bihar.”

Kushwaha quit the Bharatiya Janta Party-led NDA alliance citing saffron party’s “arrogance” amid disagreements on seat-sharing for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
