Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Eknath Khadse will join the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) on Friday. Nationalist Congress Party leader Jayant Patil confirmed that today. Eknath Khadse leaves the party because false allegations were put against him. Eknath Khadse said that, “I have worked almost 35-40 years for the party and I worked a lot and lastly I left the Bharatiya Janata Party. I will join the Nationalist Congress Party on 23rd October. My objection is just against Devendra Fadnavis. I was erroneously blamed but however nothing is proven. I was troubled by one BJP leader. I didn’t get justice from the BJP. I had become upset and ultimately I persuaded myself to leave.”
Nationalist Congress Party leader Jayant Patil said that, “Bharatiya Janata Party leader Eknath Khadse, who has assumed a huge role in the development of the BJP in Maharashtra, and announced to leave the BJP. He has told me about his choice at some point back. This has prepared for his acceptance in the Nationalist Congress Party. Eknath Khadse will officially join the party on Friday noon at 2 PM. A few other BJP leaders, supported him to join the NCP. Whatever, a decision is yet to be taken. We don’t need elections during the Covid-19 pandemic and consequently choices about different leadors will be taken at proper time.”
It might be reviewed that Eknath Khadse needed to leave the Devendra Fadnavis govt after charges of fraud. From that point forward, he was being disregarded in the BJP. Maharashtra 2019 elections, BJP didn’t give any ticket to him. Despite the fact that his little girl Rohini Khadse was given the ticket, she lost. Eknath Khadse’s girl in-law Raksha Khadse challenged the Lok Sabha elections on a BJP ticket and won. In any case, it isn’t yet clear on the off chance that she will leave the BJP also.
Keshav Uphadhye has stated that, “Eknath Khadse was our leader. Till at the beginning of today he was in Bharatiya Janata Party. We were persuading him to stay for the party. We greeted him well for the future life.
