Giving a jolt to Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) amidst the ongoing National Elections 2019, its former MP and Union Minister Ali Ashraf Fatmi quit from the all the post and primary membership after he was denied ticket from the parliamentary seat of Madhubani in Bihar.

He has represented Darbhanga Lok Sabha Seat four times.

“After serving the party for 30 years continuously, I resign from the primary
membership of the @RJD,” the former Member of Parliament (MP) Fatmi tweeted. The Former Union Minister is expected to contest from the Madhubani Lok Sabha Seat as an Independent.

He further said that RJD has suspended him for 6 years after I showed my willingness to contest national elections from Madhubani. As quoted by PTI, Fatmi said, ‘Tejashwi Yadav spoke to me on Tuesday and informed that I am suspended from the party for six years’.

Fatmi was upset with the party for ignoring him in a run-up to the national elections. He had in 2014 General Elections unsuccessfully against the then BJP Candidate Kirti Azad on Darbhanga Lok Sabha Seat.
