While Kushwaha said he had been contesting from Ujiyarpur besides Karakat because of “demand and pressure” from his party workers, sources said Kushwaha “had not been getting very good feedback from Karakat”.
Kushwaha, who left the NDA in December last year and joined the Grand Alliance subsequently, also said that Yadav must be appreciated for his "honesty" as he "did not take away even a spoon while vacating the bungalow".
Bihar Bandh Today 04 Feb 2019 HIGHLIGHTS: Kushwaha was injured Saturday in a clash with the police after being prevented from marching towards the Raj Bhavan to demand educational reforms in the state.
Armed with lathis (sticks) and raising slogans denouncing the state government for failing to do the needful on the party's charter of demands on educational reforms, the RLSP leaders came to blows with policemen at the Dak Bungalow crossing.
The Grand Alliance saw the recent additions of Upendra Kushwaha’s RLSP and EBC leader Mukesh Sahni’s Vikasshil Insaan Party. Former CM Jitan Ram Manjhi’s Hindustani Awam Morcha (S) has already been part of it.
