Upendra Kushwaha and his ‘Dal Badal’ history

The picture of Upendra Kushwaha’s ‘Dal Badal’ is very old in the history of politics. In 2005, when the BJP and JDU-led NDA came to power in Bihar, Kushwaha lost the election from his own seat. After which the distance came between Kushwaha and Nitish. Not only this, he also said goodbye to JDU. After which Kushwaha formed his new party and named it Rashtriya Samata Party.

However, in the year 2010, winds of change once again blew and Kushwaha returned home on Nitish’s invitation. Upendra once again came to JDU. But this story did not end here. The story of ‘changing party’ once again started being told in the discussions of politics.

In fact, in March 2013, just before the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, Upendra Kushwaha formed his new party Rashtriya Lok Samta Party (RLSP). And also gave its support to NDA in 2014 Lok Sabha elections. His party contested elections on three Lok Sabha seats in Bihar and during that time the magic of Modi wave was such that these three seats fell in Kushwaha’s court. And in its reward, he got a place in the Modi cabinet and became the Minister of State for Human Resources.

RLSP merged with JDU

This party of Kushwaha disintegrated within 5 years. By the time 2018 came, Kushwaha’s party collapsed in one stroke. After which he got the support of Tejashwi Yadav. But then he could not win even a single seat. Got disappointed. After all this, Upendra Kushwaha once again turned to JDU. And merged his party RLSP with JDU.

Recently, the discussions about making Upendra Kushwaha as deputy CM intensified in Bihar, then his answer came that he is not a monk. But later when the picture became clear, Kushwaha’s hands remained empty once again… after which he has started considering himself as a sideline in the party.

What did Nitish Kumar say amid speculations?

But now, amidst all the speculations, when Nitish Kumar was discussed about this, he did not seem very worried about Kushwaha. Nitish Kumar said that he has left JDU two-three times before and has come back. However, Nitish further said that he will talk to Upendra Kushwaha about this soon. In such a situation, now everyone is watching whether Upendra will once again leave Nitish’s side and take a new path or go with BJP and prove all the speculations true. Or will make competent efforts to strengthen the JDU which he is calling weak today.
