New Delhi: Amid the speculations of joining BJP, JDU leader Upendra Kushwaha called for his old party RLSP colleagues and prominent leaders of Mahatma Phule Samta Parishad for a meeting. Talking to ANI about the meeting, Kushwaha tried to clear the air and said that he is not joining BJP and is trying to protect JDU. 

Upendra Kushwaha said that he has been working to protect the JDU for so long now. He added that the Bihar CM and JDU chief Nitish Kumar is not paying attention to this and that is the reason for calling a meeting of party workers to find a solution to save their party.

On joining BJP, Kushwaha said that people spreading rumours of him joining the BJP are those who do not have answers to his questions.

The meeting will take place in Patna on February 19 and 20. Calling for a meeting Upendra Kushwaha also released a letter expressing concern about the disintegration of JDU. In the letter also he wrote that Nitish Kumar is not paying attention to the problems in the party and that is why there is a need for a discussion.

Kushwaha’s statements in the past few days have again given rise to the rhetoric within the alliance of the Bihar government, between RJD and Janata Dal (United).

Meanwhile, CM Nitish Kumar’s Samadhan Yatra reached Katihar where it faced a protest by the locals of Dighari Panchayat, Korha block. The protesters alleged that they were not allowed to meet the CM. They also set fire to posters of CM Nitish Kumar and Deputy CM Tejashwi Yadav.
