BJP worker quits over rebel Cong MLAs joining party



Days after re-enrolling in Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)
as part of its nationwide membership drive, a young BJP worker, Pranav
Sanvorderkar, resigned from the party after voicing his discontent over the
induction of ten Congress MLAs into the party fold.

Sanvorderkar said over the phone, “I am deeply hurt with
the news of ten Congress MLAs shifting allegiance to the BJP and joining the
party ahead of some of them being inducted in the state cabinet.”

Sanvorderkar, who claims to be working for the party for
about two decades, made his resignation public by posting it over social media.

“My association with the Bharatiya Janata Party comes to
an end today… It was the ideology of the party which brought me towards this
party… I still remember, during the 1999 election of Ramakant Angle, I used

to write slips, paint the roads/houses…Can still
remember attending the Campal rally of our beloved leader Atal Bihari Vajpayee
for the very first time with my family…” read an open letter the former BJP
worker wrote.

“Having said this, I am extremely saddened by the events
which took place during the last two days…I cannot be a part of this
organisation anymore even if the decision is for the betterment of the
party…If I keep quiet now, it would be like suffering a thousand deaths which
I already have…The party may have succeeded in safeguarding the interest of
the government, but has lost a sincere karyakarta and core voter. So in my
personal interest, I am quitting politics for now to start something afresh,”
he said.

The development comes two days after ten Goa Congress
MLAs joined the BJP in the presence of its working president J P Nadda and Goa
Chief Minister Pramod Sawant in Delhi on Thursday. With this, Congress, which
is grappling for survival in Karnataka, suffered yet another blow as the BJP’s
strength increased from 17 to 27 in the Goa legislative assembly.

With ten MLAs changing sides, the strength of Congress on
the floor of the House has been reduced to a mere five.
