- OP Rajbhar says his request for road repair ignored
- Mr Rajbhar's Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party is an ally of BJP
- But BJP's ties with SBSP have been going downhill for last few months
He and his family members have sought help from villagers in building the road themselves, news agency ANI reported.
Sporting a yellow turban, the colour associated with his Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party or SBSP, the minister for backward classes and disabled has started levelling the road and clearing the mud.
"When the district administration has an indifferent attitude towards a minister, how can the public expect their requests to be heard," the minister said.
According to ANI, Mr Rajbhar was hosting a reception for his son's wedding is scheduled on Sunday at his house. "I don't want my guests to be inconvenienced because of the condition of the roads," he said.
But the BJP's ties with SBSP - a party which has support in the eastern part of the state and four seats in the 403-member assembly - have been going downhill for the last few months.
But this week, the BJP's state president Mahendra Nath Pandey gave it back to the SBSP legislator when he, while addressing a function in lawmaker Kailash Sonkar's constituency, called the SBSP legislator a "thief".
"I am saying it very clearly...I have been told that he (Kailash Sonkar) has been looting poor people. It is the people who are complaining against him. We will not tolerate any corruption from elected representatives," said Mr Pandey to explain why the legislator's wasn't put on the foundation stone.
