RCP Singh, a trustee of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and a retired Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer, has been made the national president of the Janata Dal United (JDU). In the meeting of the JDU National Executive on Sunday, Nitish Kumar announced his resignation from his post. After this, JPU national general secretary (organization) RCP Singh was proposed to be the president of the party, which was unanimously approved.
According to the information from the sources, in the meeting, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar claimed responsibility for the poor performance of the party in the Bihar assembly elections. Due to the responsibility of the Chief Minister, he is unable to give time to the party. JDU needs a full-time president to take the party forward. Full-time president can make JDU the number one party in Bihar from number three.
Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said in the meeting that RCP Singh was looking after the work of the organization for a long time. He is also holding the post of Organization General Secretary. It is proposed to make him the chairman. RCP Singh’s name has been stamped since Nitish Kumar’s proposal.
What happened in Arunachal Pradesh will not affect Bihar: Sanjay Jha
The meeting of the JDU’s national executive commenced on Sunday at Kapri Thakur Auditorium at the party’s state headquarters under the chairmanship of Nitish Kumar. Representatives from Tamil Nadu, Kerala, West Bengal and Jharkhand are also attending the meeting. Before the meeting began, the party’s national general secretary Sanjay Jha said that all the issues will be discussed in the national executive meeting, including the issue of Arunachal Pradesh. However, he claimed that Arunachal Pradesh will not have an impact in Bihar. JDU MLAs were supporting the government in Arunachal even after such an incident happened, it is a matter of churn. On being targeted by the opposition party on this matter, Sanjay Jha said that he has no more work left. The opposition only dreamed that the government would run with strength for five years. He said that in these five years there is no possibility for anyone.
BJP’s practice of inducting six JDU MLAs is not fair: Shravan Kumar
At the same time, senior JDU leader and MLA Shravan Kumar said that sometimes there is a time of sorrow. The party has been facing this before. He said that JDU will deal with every situation. Earlier, JDU Principal General Secretary KC Tyagi had said that in Arunachal Pradesh, BJP’s practice of inducting six JDU MLAs is not appropriate. He had said that the BJP’s absolute majority government is in Arunachal Pradesh, so it was not necessary to do it this way.
Meanwhile, political experts believe that after the disappointing performance of the JDU in the recently concluded Bihar Assembly elections, speculations started that there would be a big upset in the party in the coming days. Let us know that in the assembly elections, JDU has got 43 and BJP has got 74 seats. At the same time, before the start of JDU’s national executive meeting, the party suffered a major setback in Arunachal Pradesh, where six out of seven JDU MLAs joined the BJP.
