Gandhinagar, 5 February 2021
In Jamnagar, double standards of BJP state president CR Patil and BJP general secretary Bhikhu Dalsania and agriculture minister and former state president RC Faadu have come out. In Jamnagar, a relative of the former mayor has been given a ticket and on the other hand, a relative of the deputy mayor has resigned against Patil’s decision not to give the ticket.
Former Jamnagar deputy mayor Karsan Karamure has resigned from the party after his family members were denied tickets in the local body the Jamnagar Municipal Corporation elections.
Karsan Karamure had sought tickets for his family members in the Jamnagar Municipal Corporation election. But they were angry that the ticket had not been given. He resigned from the party.
“Don’t give me a ticket,” Karmure said. “I had asked for tickets for my family members. But my demand was not accepted by the party. The families of the rebels have been issued tickets. That is why I am resigning from the BJP.”
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post, to fight, election. BJP is in doubt.
BJP has given ticket to Dhiren Kumar and Nilesh Kagathra from ward number 9 of Jamnagar Municipal Corporation. Both are Congress imports. Activists arrived at the BJP office to protest. The workers do not recognize them. They do not live in this area. Even though he has been given a ticket. Local activists have been treated unfairly by the party.
Parth Jethwa, son of former Mayor Harsukh Jethwa, has been given a ticket in ward number 10 of the Jamnagar Municipal Corporation.
There were heavy protests against it.
The BJP worker said that on the one hand, the BJP does not believe in nepotism. On the other hand, former corporators and their family members get tickets.
