RPN Singh Quits Congress, Joins BJP

Lucknow: One of the Congress’ most prominent leaders in Uttar Pradesh, RPN Singh, quit the party on Tuesday and crossed over to the BJP in build-up to the next month’s Assembly election in the state.

Singh is likely to contest the UP Assembly Polls from his stronghold Padrauna. He has been elected MLA thrice from the constituency.

“I have been in one party for the last 32 years, but today I must say that party is no longer what it used to be. Today, everyone knows that if there is one party that is working for the benefit of the people and is working on building the nation, it is the BJP,” RPN Singh was quoted as saying this afternoon by NDTV.

Jyotiraditya Scindia, who took the Congress-to-BJP route back in 2020, was also on stage with him.

A key OBC (Other Backward Class) leader from eastern UP, Singh, is the Congress’ second big exit in the state after Jitin Prasada, who has now become a minister in the Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government in UP.
