Singh, former BJP MLC, who was removed by the state party president Mangal Pandey from spokesman post for publicly expressing doubt over leadership quality of Narendra Modi and praising Nitish Kumar, tendered his resignation to state chief.

"I had asked party leadership to discuss the case by 11 am, but when no reply came I sent my resignation to Bihar party President Mangal Pandey," Singh told reporters in the Assembly premises.

He said that he had not said anything wrong or against the party. "My removal has made it clear that questioning Modi is not tolerable in the BJP now. BJP leaders are busy praising Modi by sidelining and ignoring veteran party leaders Atal Bihari Vajpayee and LK Advani. Now, they are claiming that Modi is more popular than Vajpayee. I am pained by it," Ram Kishore Singh said.

"Nitish Kumar was and still is 'vikas purush' who has capacity to take everybody together...he is definitely a PM material," the ex-BJP MLC said.
