That RCP tax of Bihar, for which Tejashwi used to target Nitish, but why is he silent now?
‘However wrong the officer may be, no matter how many serious cases he is involved in, but no one can spoil his hair because he has done the work of paying RCP tax.’ In 2018, Tejashwi Yadav had described the status of RCP Singh in a TV interview like this. Means if something ‘big’ is to be done in Bihar, then even RCP Singh’s leaf cannot be thrown without it. From the government to the party, the coin of Ramchandra Prasad Singh (RCP Singh) used to run. From officer to industrialist, RCP could not ignore Singh.
That RCP tax of Tejashwi
Bihar’s Leader of Opposition Tejashwi Yadav has surrounded the Nitish government in the assembly by taking the name of RCP tax. He once said in the house that RCP tax is collected in Bihar. There is no provision for any such tax in the tax system of India, but this special type of tax is taken only in Bihar. Tejashwi often takes the name of RCP tax to attack the functioning of Nitish government. Once he had said that the bus RCP tax is taken properly in Bihar. However, JDU always objected to his words.
RCP Tax = Bribery!
Tejashwi Yadav often used to say that RCP tax has to be paid in transfer-posting of officers. No matter how many mistakes the officer keeps on committing, no matter how many serious cases he is involved in, but no one can spoil his hair because he has done the work of paying RCP tax. Even before this, Tejashwi Yadav had given such a statement from different forums regarding RCP tax. He used to repeat it again and again to attack Nitish Kumar. In Madhubani, he had said that a different type of tax is levied in Bihar, which is RCP tax. Under this, bribe is being collected openly.
Tejashwi silent in the case of RCP
Now the wheel of time has turned upside down. Leader of Opposition Tejashwi Yadav is not talking about RCP tax. Now RCP Singh’s party has asked him for clarification. Tejashwi Yadav, who attacked Nitish Kumar in the name of RCP in Bihar assembly, is silent. His party RJD also did not say anything special. On social media, Tejashwi neither said anything about RCP Singh nor about Nitish. The state president of RCP Singh’s party JDU has asked him for cleanliness on 40 bighas of land. But the entire clan of RJD is silent.
