Mumbai / Jalna: With the resignation of Eknath Khadse, the BJP has started to decline. After Eknath Khadse’s entry into the NCP, BJP leader Pankaja Munde should join the Shiv Sena, an offer made by Shiv Sena leader and former minister Arjun Khotkar.
Pankaja Munde has now reacted to Arjun Khotkar’s statement. I have thanked Arjun Khotkar for offering me to join Shiv Sena. Also about Eknath Khadse, Pankaja Munde said, “I am in great pain due to the departure of Eknath Khadse and Nathabhau.” He was speaking to the media when he visited Wadi Godri in Jalna district.
Meanwhile, senior leader Eknath Khadse has left the BJP and joined the Nationalist Congress Party. The party was inaugurated in the presence of NCP MP Sharad Pawar and Eknath Khadse was admitted by state president Jayant Patil. Pro-Khadse activists also carried the NCP flag. Rohini Khadse was joined by MP Supriya Sule.
After joining the NCP, Eknath Khadse has again targeted the BJP. I struggled a lot. This struggle took place not only in the BJP, but also in the cabinet. After 40 years, he did not want to leave the party all of a sudden. Defamation and harassment also took place in the Assembly elections. I requested the seniors to give evidence in the House, but the question has not been answered till date, claimed Eknath Khadse.
In 40 years, I have never done politics in front of a woman, I do not have the nature to do politics in front of anyone, said Eknath Khadse. Eknath Khadse has also warned that if they put ED behind me, I will put CD. He will do as much for the NCP as he did for the BJP. Eknath Khadse has also expressed confidence that the NCP will grow at twice the speed at which the BJP grew. Similarly, Eknath Khadse has also clarified that he does not expect any post.
Eknath Khadse further said, “I had discussions with seniors in Delhi. At that time, he also said, Nathabhau, you have no future here now. If you want to change the party, change it, go to the NCP, said Eknath Khadse.
Strong performance as Leader of the Opposition
Eknath Khadse has also done well as the Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly. Scholars and aggressively on the questions of the people, he often slammed the government in the Legislative Assembly. With statistics, with evidence, they were crashing into government ministers. Once while discussing the VAT issue at the Nagpur convention, Eknath Khadse set a record by speaking for eight and a half hours in a row. Due to this speech, the then Prime Minister Chandrasekhar paid special tribute to Eknath Khadse.
Khadse should be used for the state, not for the BJP – BJP
The departure of Eknath Khadse will not make any difference, Nathabhau should be used for the betterment of the state, for development work, not for the opposition. Union Minister Raosaheb Danve has claimed that BJP workers are capable of filling the void created by the departure of Eknath Khadse.
