BJP's Sushil Modi Battling Cancer, Won't Contest Lok Sabha Polls

BJP leader and former Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar, Sushil Kumar Modi, disclosed today that he has been grappling with cancer for the past six months. This revelation comes alongside his announcement that he will not be participating in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. The absence of Mr. Modi's name from the BJP's list of candidates for the Rajya Sabha elections in February triggered widespread speculations. Once regarded as a stalwart of the party, the 72-year-old Mr Modi wielded significant influence over the BJP in Bihar for more than three decades. In a statement, Mr Modi expressed, "I have been battling cancer for the last 6 months. Now I feel that the time has come to tell people. I will not be able to do anything in the Lok Sabha elections. I have told everything to the PM. Always grateful and always dedicated to the country, Bihar and the party." Reacting to this news, Mr Modi's friend and political rival, Shivanand Tiwari, expressed his hope that Mr Modi's "fighting spirit will continue in the face of illness." "Very saddened to hear the news of Sushil Modi's illness. Sushil is one of the trinity (Lalu Yadav, Nitish Kumar and Sushil Modi) born out of the Bihar movement of 1974. Be it the ruling party or the opposition, today the leadership of both is in the hands of this trinity. Lalu Yadav, Nitish Kumar and Sushil Modi all three emerged from the same movement and gradually they ousted the old generation of Bihar politics. The leadership of Bihar politics has been in the hands of these three for almost thirty years," said 81-year-old Mr Tiwari, former JDU and RJD leader. "Sushil and I were together in Bankipur jail for almost three months and in the same cell. There have been sharp ideological differences between us. But despite everything, I maintain an affectionate relationship with him. We hope that his fighting spirit will continue even in the face of illness. Our best wishes and prayers are with him," he added.
