Patna: Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) leader and Union Minister Upendra Kushwaha, at a press conference in Patna on Saturday, said his party would be organizing human chains outside one school in each Panchayat in Bihar to spread awareness about educational reforms undertaken by his department under the NDA cabinet at the Center.

"We have planned human chain outside one school in every panchayat in Bihar on January 30 to spread awareness about educational reforms. I appeal to all parties and also the Chief Minister of Bihar to support us make this event successful," Kushwaha, who is the State Minister of Human Resources Department in the Narendra Modi cabinet, said.

The RLSP leader also praised the Prime Minister by comparing him the second 'Lauh Purush' (Iron Man) of India for making bold and radical social and economic decisions that, he said, had raised the status of the country in the eyes of the world leaders.

"By taking bold decisions, he has made the country economically strong while also curbing Pakistan-sponsored terror activities in India. He has also stood up to China and continues to show leadership in the international arena," Kushwaha said.

The RLSP chief further said that the youth wing of his party would be celebrating belated 142nd birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel, the original Iron Man of India, across the state.

With his off again, on again relationship with Chief Minister Nitish Kumar whom he had called a failed leader in the past, Kushwaha showered praise on the Janata Dal – U leader saying he supported Kumar's policies on prohibition, child marriages, and dowry wholeheartedly and was proud to participate in many of his human chains.

"I urge the Chief Minister for his support in our crusade against sub-standard education in Bihar," he said.
