The dates of the Lok Sabha election have been announced and the political parties have started campaigning at their respective levels and the process of getting dissident leaders of other parties in the party is also catching up. Every day some other party leaders are joining a party. During the change of party, a major setback was seen in the politics of Maharashtra that the son of the leader of the Opposition leader in the assembly joined BJP.
Congress is busy in the Working Committee meeting in Gujarat after 58 years and the top leadership of the party is present there. On the other hand, Leader of Opposition Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil’s son, Sujay, joined the Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday. According to BJP sources, the party can give Sujay a ticket from Ahmednagar Lok Sabha seat. Right now, Manjushlal Gandhi is MP from BJP there.
Sujay joined the party in the presence of Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. It is being said that there is a lot of resentment in the party itself on the news of joining BJP and ticketing for contesting from Ahmednagar Lok Sabha seat.
Sources say that supporters of senior MP and former Union minister Dilip Gandhi are protesting against the involvement of Sujay’s party.
On the other hand, reasons behind leaving the Congress of Sujay is that Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil was demanding ticket from Ahmednagar Lok Sabha seat for his son Sujay, but the Congress should have a deal with the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) And after the seat went into the NCP’s account, there was a great shock to Sujoy Patil.
On the other hand, NCP chief Sharad Pawar had said that Sujay Winke Patil was offered from here to contest the elections on behalf of his party, but he rejected it.
Congress had done every possible effort to stop Sujoy from joining BJP. Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil was also called Delhi for this. He had met Congress President Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi a day earlier, but there was no solution.
