Lucknow: Considered as one of the close aides of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati, state Family Welfare Minister Babu Singh Kushwaha was sacked from the party on Monday night for being accused of double Chief Medical Officer (CMO) murder earlier this year and NRHM scam.

The BSP state in-charge, Swami Prasad Maurya, in his written statement held Kushwaha accountable for CMOs murder. According to him, the murders were results of Kushwaha’s negligent attitude.

Kushwaha was thrown out of the party on the grounds that he shared with the Congress to save himself from National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) scam.

Maurya informed that the decision has been taken to check the plummeting image of the party. He said, “Surprisingly, as noose has been tightened around Kushwaha for the NRHM scam he is facing life-threat from the Principal and Chief Secretary of the state. Why wasn’t he fearful when he was working with these bureaucrats?”
