‘New faces introduced by us are trying to sideline senior party workers,’ claims upset Eknath Khadse criticizing BJP leaders over his daughter’s defeat
MAHARASHTRA| Eknath Khadse expressed his grief over BJP party workers in his today’s speech at Beed in Maharashtra. From long time Eknath Khadse was upset with the BJP as they gave Khadse’s Daughter Rohini assembly ticket instead of him. “Party insiders are trying to sideline the seniors,” said Khadse. ‘The leadership of BJP members hold jealousy and hatred against party workers itself,’ He added.
Eknath Khadse also claimed, ‘Party people have targeted him along with Pankaja Munde’.
Rejected by the party to contest assembly election Eknath Khadse expressed his disagreement today fiercely while addressing people in Beed. Khadse said, ‘They are trying to sideline the people who introduced them to the party and help them grow’.
He further added, ‘Gopinath Munde was a true leader and party worker. Because of Gopinath Munde, BJP in Maharashtra has grown widely. He introduced many faces and helped the party to secure the stronghold.” “Gopinath Munde was a leader of a common man and did not betray anyone,” Khadse said while remembering Gopinath Munde on his birth anniversary today.
‘The defeat of Pankaja Munde and Rohini Khadse (Daughter of Eknath Khadse) was preplanned by some insiders,’ Khadse explained.
‘The party Insulted and betrayed me. If Gopinath Munde was alive today I would have been serving as Chief Minister of Maharashtra,’ Khadse accused BJP for diversion.
‘I am deeply hurt and saddened by the treatment of the party towards me. Leaders I supported and helped to grow have forgotten the importance, I did not expect this from them,” without naming anyone Khadse expressed.
‘When I was Minister I allowed to build the Gopinath Munde memorial for which I allowed land as well. Five years passed having the power, still, the memorial is not built. I met Uddhav Thackeray, the newly elected Chief Minister and asked him for the financial help, he instantly approved,’ Khadse praised ShivSena President Uddhav Thackeray.
‘Party workers should leave the party on their own is the conspiracy created by insiders. The environment is such today the party workers are leaving the party on there own. The picture created by the BJP in Maharashtra has disliked by many,’ Khadse explained.
‘Seithji-Bhattji, BJP was known for this in the past but the hard work and efforts of Gopinath Munde to uphold the minorities have created equality in the party. Gopinath Munde has never betrayed anyone. I have experienced Munde’s leadership. This is the reason I am not giving up. I’ll support Pankaja and hopefull towards party’s betterment,’ Khadse added.
Today Pankaja Munde organised power show on the event of Gopinath Munde’s Birth anniversary in Beed. Gopinath Munde died in a road accident on 3 June 2014, while on his way to Delhi airport.
