Former Union Minister led Nagmani Samras Samaj Party (SSP) today merged into Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP), an ally of NDA.
Mr Nagmani along with all office bearers of his party joined RSLP in presence of RLSP Chief and Union Minister of State for Human Resources Development Upendra Kushwaha at a function here. Speaking on the occasion, Mr Nagmani said the members of all prominent castes had become Chief Minister of the state in the past except Kushwaha community despite it was ranked third in term of population in the state.
He said Kushwaha community had never voted in the elections with an intention to make their member Chief Minister of the state. Former Union Minister Nagmani said his father Jagdeo Prasad led Shoshit Dal had formed the government in the state but he did not become Chief Minister himself and instead installed B.P. Mandal on the chair of CM.
He said that he without any selfish end wanted to see RLSP Chief Mr Kushwaha as Chief Minister of the state.
Mr Nagmani said the BJP could form government in Uttar Pradesh only after members of Kushwaha community had supported the party en bloc. Union Minister Mr Kushwaha said the RLSP would be strengthened with the merger of SSP into his party.
He said the RLSP`s strength had earlier increased after former Minister Bhagwan Singh Kushwaha had joined the party.
the union minister said the workers of his party would criss-cross the state to inform them about the achievements of the BJP led NDA government in the centre.
He said Bihar would also witness high rate of growth as the NDA was in power both in the Centre and also in the state.
RLSP MP from Sitamarhi Ram Kumar Sharma, former MP and state RLSP president Bhudeo Choudhary, former Minister Bhagwan Singh Kushwaha, RLSP vice president Shankar Jha and national RLSP spokesperson Fazal Imam Mallik also spoke on the occasion.UNI DH BM
