New Delhi: The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) legislator from Damoh, Ramabai Ahirwar, expressed hope of getting inducted in the Madhya Pradesh cabinet and stated that she will be made a minister when ‘they need her’.
Ramabai was asked whether she was still unhappy for not being inducted in Madhya Pradesh government, Ramabai said, “Banayenge, zaroorat padegi jab unhe.”
She said that the MP Chief Minister Kamal Nath should stay on the post as he is a good person.
In January, Ramabai had demanded ministerial berth for 2 BSP MLAs in Kamal Nath government.
“If they don’t give us ministerial berth, then not only me but others also oppose. They need to keep everyone happy. If he wants to keep the party strong, then firstly, he must make us strong,” she had said.
