Gandhinagar, 9 February 2021
The BJP’s differences in local body elections in Gujarat state have reached a climax. The BJP talks of ending the family suit on the one hand, on the other hand, gives tickets to relatives of some leaders. The rule of not giving tickets to relatives has been made in Gujarat at the behest of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. BJP’s Bahubali leader Madhu raised a finger on him and rebelled against Modi.
It is the BJP MLA from Vagodia Vidhan Sabha Bethak in Vadodara who has questioned the BJP’s approach. Deepak, son of BJP MLA Madhu Srivastava, has not been given a ticket. The father-son rebelled from the party.
Srivastava was pointing fingers at Patil, saying that there are many leaders in Gujarat, whose relatives have been given tickets by the BJP. The ticket has been given to the nephew of Vadodara MP and his elder father’s son. Two tickets from the same family have been provided. The rule of kinship has been made. If it is to be followed, it should be done for all, but it is not right to pretend to cut the ticket on the basis of kinship. Then why was my son Deepak not given a ticket.
Pointing to the rules made by Prime Minister Modi, Madhu said that the BJP makes such rules when it comes to power in Gujarat. If not today, tomorrow will be harmful.
