"Is there any doubt? How can I refuse today?" said Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) chief Jayant Singh on Friday, 9 February, amid speculations that his party was leaving the INDIA alliance to join the BJP-led NDA, according to a report by news agency PTI.

Singh also distributed sweets after it was announced that his grandfather and former Prime Minister Charan Singh would be conferred with the Bharat Ratna posthumously.

"I thank the President, the Government of India and especially Prime Minister Narendra Modi-ji because it is part of his vision… His decision to award Bharat Ratna to three persons, particularly for Chaudhary Charan Singh, has sent a big message across the country," Singh said.

“A decision that none of the past governments took, it became possible due to Narendra Modi’s vision, efforts and dedication,” he added, as quoted by The Indian Express.
