Patna: Nearly a week after forming his new political party Rashtriya Lok Janata Dal (RLJD), Upendra Kushwaha on Tuesday began his ‘Virasat Bachao Naman Yatra’ from the famous Gandhi Ashram at Bhitiharwa in West Champaran district.
Before starting his journey, Kushwaha paid floral tributes before the statue of Mahatma Gandhi. “Gandhi’s thoughts and ideals give us the strength to fight against injustice and darkness,” Kushwaha began his visit.
Addressing a gathering near the Gandhi ashram, Kushwaha said, “Attempts were being made to bring Bihar back to the pre-2005 situation. But I will not allow this to happen. Social justice stream of Mahatma Gandhi, Ram Manohar Lohia Jayaprakash Narayan and Karpoori Thakur are not dry. I will fight to carry forward the political legacy of Karpoori Thakur.
After reaching Motihari, Kushwaha paid floral tributes to freedom fighter Batakh Miyan who saved the life of Mahatma Gandhi.
Senior RLJD leader Fazal Imam Malik told TOI on Tuesday, “Kushwaha will reach Muzaffarpur on Wednesday, the second day of his visit.” He said that the first phase of Kushwaha’s yatra would end in Siwan on February 6.
Earlier on February 20, Kushwaha quit Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal (United) for a record third time in the last 16 years and launched another political party RLJD.
