PATNA: Senior RJD leader Raghuvansh Prasad Singh on Thursday resigned from the party. In a letter addressing to party president Lalu Prasad, Singh said he had backed the RJD chief for 32 years after the death of Karpoori Thakur, but will not do so anymore.
Raghuvansh is presently undergoing post Covid-19 treatment at AIIMS-Delhi, from where he wrote this resignation letter. His resignation ahead of assembly polls in Bihar has given a big jolt to the RJD. “We will definitely suffer from his absence. He is the founder of our party,” said a party leader.
Raghuvansh had been upset with the party, after muscleman Rama Singh made an announcement about him joining the RJD. After Rama’s announcement, Singh had resigned from the post of party’s national vice-president while he was undergoing treatment for Covid-19 at AIIMS-Patna, following which Rama’s entry was put on hold.
“He was also not happy with RJD’s state president Jagdanand Singh, another Rajput to be given more responsibilities in the party. The duo do not share a very cordial relations,” said a senior RJD leader.
However, JDU has welcomed Raghuvansh’s decision and hit at the RJD for not treating a senior leader of such a big stature well.
