Out of favour BJP MLA gets threatened over contesting Bihar polls

Patna, Sep 28 (IANS) An out of favour BJP legislator on Monday said she got a threat letter asking her not to contest the upcoming Bihar assembly polls as a rebel candidate.

Rashmi Verma, who was denied ticket by the BJP, told police: “I have received a threat letter in Hindi in which I was asked not to contest the polls as it will affect the prospects of others.”

Verma, a legislator from Narkatiaganj assembly constituency, lodged a complaint with the Sikarpur police station after receiving the letter.

The letter, according to her, also threatened that if she goes ahead and contests the polls, it will not be good for her children.

Verma suspects that criminal-turned-politician and BJP MP Satish Dubey and former BJP legislator Renu Devi, who is contesting polls as the party candidate from Narkatiaganj, were behind the letter, a police officer said.

However, Dubey denied his involvement and said Verma was frustrated after she was denied ticket by the BJP.

Renu Devi accused Verma of trying to create an environment in her favour. “If she wants to contest, who will stop her. She is welcome to contest.”
