Ahead of polls in Bihar, Raghuvansh Prasad Singh quits Rashtriya Janata Dal, RJD. He was the former Union Minister and a long time colleague of Lalu Prasad Yada. He has written a letter to the National President of the party, Lalu Prasad Yadav stating his resignation. For the past few days, he had expressed his unhappiness over bringing former BJP MP Rama Singh from Vaishali to the party by Tej Pratap Yadav.
A controversy had erupted over Raghuvansh Prasad being compared to lotta water, after which Tej Pratap Yadav said that his statement was misrepresented. Raghuvansh Prasad is his uncle.
According to sources, the health of Raghuvansh Prasad, who is also undergoing treatment at AIIMS, has deteriorated in the past few days which might be a reason for his resignation as well.
