Keshubhai Patel, Kashiram Rana resign from BJP(Video)
Gandhinagar, 4 August 2012
Rebel BJP veteran and former Chief Minister Keshubhai Patel has left the BJP with former union minister Kashiram Rana. Both the leaders have resigned from party’s primary membership. They have sent their resignation letters to Shri Nitin Gadkari, national president of BJP. An announcement on this was made today by Keshubhai at his residence in Gandhinagar.
Keshubhai said he would announce a new party and if possible names of its main office bearers on Sunday. He said MahaGujarat Janata party led by Gordhan Zadafia will merge with the new party.
Keshubhai’s exit is in a way great relief for Gujarat BJP, as Keshubhai has rescued the party from taking harsh decision of removing him. While Keshubhai is likely to announce the name of new party on Sunday, and BJP’s state level mega meet is scheduled on Monday, it is expected that BJP will bring clarity over its stand on Keshubhai issue to cadre in Monday meeting itself. As Keshubhai has left the party, the BJP will be able to counter him more conveniently.
