New Delhi, Dec 10: Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) chief Upendra Kushwaha on Monday resigned as the Minister of State for Human Resource Development.
Kushwaha has been at loggerheads with the Bharatiya Janata Party over the seat-sharing in Bihar for the high stakes 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
The development comes after the RLSP chief told the media that he will not participate in the NDA meeting at Parliament House complex slated to be held at 4 p.m.
“I will not participate in the NDA meeting,” he said.
The politician has been critical of the saffron party since it announced that the BJP and the Janata Dal-United (JD-U) would contest 17 seats each in the state.
According to the tentative arrangement, the RLSP was to be granted two seats, one less than the number it had contested in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.
