The family of Former Union minister Raghuvansh Prasad Singh who passed away on Sunday in Delhi refused to take his mortal remains to the RJD office in Patna after party workers continued to ask for the same. Singh had resigned from RJD on September 10.

His family members said that the party workers were pressurising them to take the body to RJD office.

“Ever since we left Delhi, RJD party workers were pressurising us to take the body to their office. But we are against it. When my father was alive and sick for the past three months, no one came to visit him from the RJD. Why are they restless now when he had already resigned three days back?,” said Satyaprakash Singh, Raghuvansh Singh’s son.

Singh’s close aide Vinod Panjiyar said that three letters written by Singh when he was sick reflect his suffering.

“He always stood for the RJD, but the RJD kept sending businessmen to the Rajya Sabha,” he said.

Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, Vidhan Sabha Speaker Vijay Chaudhary, Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi, Leader of all the parties including Leader of Opposition, Tejashwi Yadav were present at Vidhan Sabha where Singh’s mortal remains were kept for people to pay their last respects. PM Modi also paid a moving tribute to him.

Tejasvi Yadav also visited Singh’s residence in Kautilya Nagar.

His final rites will be performed in his ancestral village in Vaishali district.
