Amid buzz over saffron drift, Upendra Kushwaha gets BJP backing | India News

PATNA: Amid rumours that Upendra Kushwaha has moved closer to BJP following controversial remarks by Bihar education minister Chandra Shekhar over the “Ramcharitmanas”, BJP functionary and RS member Sushil Kumar Modi said on Saturday that the JD(U) parliamentary board chairman’s claims were correct.
The fate of Kushwaha, who was quite elated over talk of being likely to be inducted as another deputy CM and had said he was not a sanyasi either, seems unclear with CM Nitish Kumar rejecting any scope for a second deputy CM in his cabinet.
On Saturday, Kushwaha said RJD had created a controversy over “the Ramcharitmanas” as part of a design to help BJP in lieu of leniency from the Centre in the corruption cases against RJD chief Lalu Prasad. Modi defended Kushwaha and also pointed out that JD(U) has no future.
