Party vet­eran with RSS back­ground

DNA (Daily News & Analysis) Mumbai Edition - - FRONT PAGE -

His name is among the fron­trun­ners for the cov­eted post. Union agri­cul­ture min­is­ter in pre­vi­ous Modi gov­ern­ment, Radha Mo­han Singh is a six­time MP. Another plus fac­tor is that he comes from the RSS back­ground as he be­gan his po­lit­i­cal ca­reer over­see­ing ABVP ac­tiv­i­ties. He was also Bi­har state BJP chief for three years. Party sources say drop­ping him from min­is­te­rial berth was done keep­ing Speaker’s post in mind. Though his skills to han­dle the House with all the nitty-grit­tys of rules are a lit­tle sus­pect, he can be the choice to meet the ag­gres­sion likely to be shown by the Op­po­si­tion de­spite thin strength.
