Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) chief Upendra Kushwaha on Saturday said he would begin a fast unto death from November 26, the country’s Constitution Day, seeking allotment of land by the state government for the opening of two central schools – one at Nawada and another at Deokund in Aurangabad district.
Kushwaha also released a letter written by Union human resource development minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ on September 19 this year to CM Nitish Kumar, requesting the latter to allot land for the opening of the two central schools in 30 days from the date of the receipt of the letter.
Nishank’s letter has also pointed out that 11 months had already passed since the Centre first intimated the Bihar government about the opening of two schools, but no follow up action was taken.
Kushwaha said his fast unto death protest would continue until the Nitish Kumar government takes necessary steps for allotment of land.
