Patna: Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) chief and Union Minister Upendra Kushwaha, talking to the media following a meeting of his party district presidents in Patna on Saturday, blamed Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for the current political standoff in Bihar saying the Janata Dal – U leader was only concerned with saving his chair and nothing else.

"Nitish Kumar has a history of drowning the boat he is riding on. He has been proven a power-hungry politician who would do anything to remain in power and to save his chair. This had been his entire political history. All this talk about how he is a man of principles is rubbish," he said.

Kushwaha also called out the Chief Minister on his prohibition policy saying the whole thing was a giant effort by Kumar to fool the people of Bihar.

"For 12 years, Nitish Kumar had been duping the people of Bihar. Health care and education had never been worse in the state than it is now. Voters now know who he really is and what he stands for. I have talked to many people and it is evident that they are not in a mood to be fooled by him anymore. Come next election, voters will teach him a lesson he will never forget," the RLSP leader said.

He also announced his party's upcoming rally, dubbed as 'Akrosh Dikhao, Shiksha Bachao', at Patna's Gandhi Maidan on October 15.

Others present on the occasion included Bhagwan Singh Kushwaha, Bhudeo Chaudhary, and Dashai Chaudhary.
