“dejected” and “betrayed and reduced to a Rubber stamp” By PM Modi ?, Union Cabinet Minister Kushwaha Resigns
In a major development Union Cabinet Minister and prominent leader from Bihar Upendra Kushwaha resigned from the Union council of ministers and walked out of the BJP-led NDA .
This comes after months of bickering between the Cabinet Minister and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar .The BJP alliance government along with Kushwaha RLSP were allies despite Nitish Kumar and Kushwaha being traditional enemies .
"You (referring to Prime Minister Modi) have systematically dismantled the functioning of the Cabinet of the government that is mandated in our constitution. The Union Cabinet has been reduced to a rubber stamp, simply endorsing your decision without any deliberation. Ministers and officers posted in ministries have become figureheads as virtually all decisions are taken by you, your office, and the BJP president [which is unconstitutional]," Mr. Kushwaha said in his resignation letter, made available to the press.
