‘Deeply hurt’ by induction of Congress MLAs in party, loyal BJP worker resigns
Panaji | Jagran News Desk: A young Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Worker, Pranav Sanvorderkar has resigned from the party after 10 Congress MLAs were inducted in the party.
"I am deeply hurt with the news of 10 Congress MLAs shifting allegiance to the BJP and joining the party ahead of some of them being inducted in the state cabinet," he told News Agency ANI on phone.
Sanvorderkar said that he has 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 elections of Ramakant Angle, I used to write slips, paint the roads/houses... Can still remember attending the Campal rally of our beloved leader late Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee ji 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 occurred during the last 2 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.
This has happened two days after 10 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.
This was another blow for Congress as the BJP's strength increased from 17 to 27 in the Legislative Assembly of Goa.
With 10 MLAs changing sides, the strength of Congress on the floor of the House was reduced to mere five.
The MLAs who changed sides include Kavlekar, Isidore Fernandes, Francis Silveira, Filipe Neri Rodrigues, Jennifer, Atanasio Monserrate, Antonio Fernandes, Nilakanth Halarnkar, Clafacio Dias and Wilfred D'Sa.
