News Politics: There is a buzz in the political circles that Singh might join the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and he is making a political pitch for himself before joining the party.
“At present, I am on the road and taking the opinion of my supporters and the people. After discussion with my supporters, I will take the decision of joining the BJP,” the former JD-U leader added.
RCP Singh on Nitish Kumar:
Singh has claimed that Nitish Kumar will not become the Prime Minister of the country even if he takes birth seven times (‘Saat Janam’).
The JD(U) accused Singh of having become a mole of the saffron camp.
He denied allegations of having acted against the JD(U)’s interests at BJP’s behest in the last assembly polls of 2020, and a few months later, having become a Union minister without consent of the Bihar CM. “Why was the alliance not called off immediately after assembly polls if there was sabotage (bhitarghaat)? Why did senior party leaders congratulate me if my becoming a minister was an act of defiance?”, asked Singh.
He alleged that Kumar “had made up his mind to betray the mandate of 2020 when people had voted the NDA back to power. I am just being used as an alibi to justify yet another volte face. I wonder how many times can he switch sides”.
