Umashankar, RJD MP, dies

RJD MP Umashankar Singh died of severe chest infection at a New Delhi hospital Thursday. He was 73. He is survived by his wife and four sons.

Singh was MLA from 1977 to 1995 and 2000 to 2005 and won from Maharajganj in 2009 Lok Sabha election, defeating Prabhunath Singh. He fell out with RJD chief Lalu Prasad later and backed Congress in 2010 Assembly polls. Lalu, who cancelled a programme after hearing of the MP's death, said, "His death has caused immense loss to RJD."
