Senior RJD chief and spokesperson Bhai Birendra on Monday raised questions as to how the ailing Raghuvansh Prasad Singh might have written letters from his ICU mattress, and alleged a political conspiracy by the JD(U).
The JD(U) rubbished the allegations as baseless.
Former Union minister Raghuvansh Prasad Singh died on Sunday. On September 10, he had written a one-line resignation letter to RJD chief Lalu Prasad and two different letters – one to Nitish in regards to the want for improvement in Vaishali, the constituency he had represented, and the opposite not addressed to anybody specifically and headlined “Rajneeti matlab buraai se ladhna, dharm matlab achchhai karna (politics that means preventing in opposition to evil; faith means doing good)”.
Alleging a conspiracy behind the letters, Birendra advised The Indian Express: “I ponder how an ailing individual might write letters from his ICU mattress. It is kind of potential that these letters have been written by another person on the behest of (CM) Nitish Kumar, who’s making an attempt to lure Singh’s son to make him a member of the Legislative Council. It is a letter conspiracy.”
Birendra, the RJD’s Maner MLA, demanded that the letters be examined by handwriting consultants. “I’ve spoken to some individuals who have been near Raghuvansh Babu. No one is confirming that it was written by the ailing chief. It is a JD(U) plot and soiled politics. Raghuvansh Babu might have by no means resigned from RJD.”
Former Rajya Sabha MP and JD(U) spokesperson Okay C Tyagi mentioned, “It may be very callous and insane of the RJD chief to make such baseless allegations. It exhibits that the RJD, which didn’t respect and worth Raghuvansh Babu, has additionally been insulting him after his dying.”
Raghuvansh was cremated in Vaishali on Monday. Two Bihar ministers, Jay Kumar Singh and Neeraj Kumar, and Leader of Opposition Tejashwi Yadav attended the previous MP’s funeral.
