Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Friday made his first statement about his close aide RCP Singh. Nitish said that we had given them a lot of rights, but they messed up. Nitish said that the RCP itself had become a Union minister. Former Bihar Deputy Chief Minister and BJP Rajya Sabha MP Sushil Modi said that Amit Shah himself had spoken to Nitish Kumar to make RCP a minister at the Center.
Sushil Modi said that if RCP Singh was not made with his approval, then why did he wait for 11 months to take action against RCP Singh. When Sharad Yadav went close to the Grand Alliance, he took immediate action, why wait for it? On Friday, CM Nitish Kumar said that RCP Singh himself became a minister at the Centre. He had demanded 4 ministerial posts, but he became himself and started saying that he was made at my behest.
Sushil Modi also attacked JDU national president Lalan Singh and said that what does he know? There were many JD(U) leaders who wanted to meet BJP leaders to make Nitish Kumar the Vice President. So that he could have a respectable exit from Bihar, but the BJP refused. When the BJP has a majority, why would he make him vice-president? The BJP MP said that he has switched sides just to dream of becoming PM, but it will remain a dream. Mamata Banerjee has got more seats in Bengal than these. Arvind Kejriwal's government is in the state 2-2. So is KCR. All CMs want him to become PM. He also said that this government will fall after the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Just like Narendra Modi's government was formed in 2019, in 2024, there will be votes in the name of Narendra Modi because Nitish Kumar's most backward vote has gone out of his hands. RCP Singh has recently resigned from the primary membership of the party. The party had refused to send him to the Rajya Sabha for the third time, forcing him to resign as a minister in the Modi government. Questions were already being raised about the political future of RCP Singh, who has been neglected for a long time within the party, but what next step he would take, everyone's eyes were on it. In his resignation letter, he had said - there is nothing left in this party. It's a sinking ship. If we are irritated, deal with us, we have options open.
