RPN Singh After Joining BJP Says Congress Not The Same As It Was Before, Will Fulfill PM’s Dreams For India


New Delhi: Soon after joining the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), former Congress leader RPN Singh lashed out at the grand old party claiming that the party has not remained the same as it was before.

While speaking to reporters after his induction ceremony, Singh also praised Narendra Modi and said that he will work as a ‘karyakarta’ (worker) towards fulfilling the dreams of the Prime Minister.

“I spent 32 years in one political party (Congress). But that party has not remained the same as it was before. I will work as a ‘Karyakarta’ towards fulfilling PM Modi’s dreams for India,” the former Union Minister said.

“I had clearly said in my press conference that the party (Congress) is no more the one where I had worked, it is not the same ideology anymore. I would not like to add anything further to it,” he said later.

When asked if his wife Sonia Singh and him contesting the UP Polls, Singh said, “I am the only one in politics. I will definitely do what the party asks me to.”

Singh’s exit from Congress comes a day after his name was included in the party’s list of 30 star campaigners for the first phase of elections in Uttar Pradesh.

His exit is the second big jolt to the grand old party in Uttar Pradesh after Jitin Prasada quit it last year. Prasada joined the BJP and later became a minister in the Yogi Adityanath government.

“This is a new beginning for me and I look forward to my contribution to nation building under the visionary leadership & guidance of the Honorable Prime Minister Shri @narendramodi, BJP president Shri @JPNadda ji & Honorable Home Minister @AmitShah ji,” Singh had tweeted before joining the saffron party.

The former in-charge for Jharkhand affairs of the party had submitted his resignation to Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi. “I hereby tender my resignation from the primary membership of the Congress party with immediate effect,” the letter read.

Interestingly, Singh had represented the Padrauna assembly constituency and had defeated Swami Prasad Maurya from Kushinagar in the 2009 Lok Sabha polls.

Sources close to IANS said that Singh was miffed over the party affairs in his home district of Padrauna as he was not taken into confidence on many issues related to the party functioning in his turf.
