Upendra Kushwaha Took 90 Lakh For Ticket

By Preeti Sigh On 13 Mar, 2019

Expelled Rashtriya Lok Samata Party leader Pradeep Mishra on Tuesday alleged that party chief Upendra Kushwaha took Rs. 90 lakh for allotting him a ticket to contest the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, a charge denied by his former boss, as the two leaders demanded a CBI probe into the matter. At a press meet in Patna, Mr Mishra, who was last week sacked from the post of RLSP national general secretary for alleged anti-party activities, provided details of the purported bank account in which he allegedly deposited the amount in two equal instalments for contesting the polls from the East Champaran seat. The RLSP has not formally announced its candidates for the Lok Sabha polls, even as internal parleys continue to decide the names. Mr Mishra announced he would join the ruling JD(U) shortly. He was accompanied by the party's former national working president Nagmani, who was ousted last month, and a host of other former RLSP leaders. "Today I am going to carry out a surgical strike on RLSP chief Upendra Kushwaha, who had taken Rs. 90 lakh from me in two equal instalments in a State Bank of India account, Parliament House, New Delhi, on December 12, 2018 for giving me the ticket from the East Champaran constituency," Mr Mishra said.
