Patna: JD(U) Ra­jya Sabha MP Anil Sahni’s al­leged in­volve­ment in the LTC scam has come as a first source of headache for CM Ni­tish Kumar af­ter his el­e­va­tion to the post of his party’ na­tional pres­i­dent.

While party in­sid­ers say Sahni should re­sign as in­quiry moves on, Shani has showed his re­luc­tance to do so. “I am whis­tle blower of the case. I will not re­sign from the mem­ber­ship of the House. I am falsely im­pli­cated in this mat­ter,” Sahni told ET on phone on Fri­day. Ra­jya Sabha chair­man Hamid An­sari has re­cently given sanc­tion to prose­cute Sahni in the same case. Sahni claimed he is a vic­tim of po­lit­i­cal con­spir­acy. “I had brought the LTC scam to the no­tice of Ra­jya Sabha sec­re­tariat in early 2013. I had in­formed the Ra­jya Sabha Sec­re­tariat,” he added. He fur­ther said he has an ac­count with SBI.
