MP Cong Spokesperson Saluja Joins BJP

Madhya Pradesh Congress Spokesperson Narendra Saluja on Friday joined Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) in the presence of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan in the state capital Bhopal.

Welcoming Saluja into the BJP family, Chouhan said his arrival will strengthen the party. “He is a leader who put his point on the basis of facts and logic. Now, he will be with Bhartiya Janata Party. I congratulate him. He should work hard for the party and contribute to the nation-building,” Chouhan said.
Saluja said, “I am grateful that the party has given me a place to serve. I have been working with Kamal Nath for the last five years. Many people have said that Kamal Nath was accused in the 1984 Sikh riots but I thought they have been speaking because of political differences.”

“But on November 8, when I accompanied him for a visit to Khalsa College, Indore on the occasion of Gurunanak Jayanti, the truth came to the fore and it disturbed me a lot. It has opened my eyes. I cannot work with a person accused of killing people of my religion. I cannot work with such an organization,” Saluja said.

Saluja further said, “Since November 8, I have neither shared any post related to Congress on social media nor attended any program. Even I neither meet Kamal Nath nor wished him on his birthday. After that incident, I decided that I can not work with the party and joined the BJP. Whatever responsibility will be given by the party, I will work for it wholeheartedly.”

Chairman of Madhya Pradesh Congress Media cell KK Mishra, however, said that Saluja was expelled from the party on November 13. He was also suspended from the party in the past. Mishra alleged that he had proof that Saluja was working for the BJP while being in the Congress party. (ANI)

Gujarat congress MLA Joins BJP

Denied A Ticket, Former Gujarat Cong MLA Joins BJP

Former Gujarat Congress MLA from the Dehgam constituency, Kamini Baa Rathore, joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday.

Miffed over being denied a ticket by the party to contest the upcoming Assembly elections, Kamini Baa had recently resigned from the Congress.
She later entered the fray as an Independent candidate but later withdrew her nomination as it became clear that she was about to join the saffron camp.

Polling for 182 Assembly constituencies in the state would be held in two phases on December 1 and 5 while the counting of votes will take place on December 8.

Speaking to reporters after joining the BJP, Kamini Baa said, “Voices of wise and experienced leaders are being suppressed in the Congress. The same happened with me. An attempt was made to suppress a woman’s voice. I joined the BJP as it believes in giving every single worker a voice and working unitedly.”

Eighty-nine of the total 182 Assembly seats will go to polls in the first phase on December 1.

The BJP has been in power in Gujarat for the last 27 years and is eyeing a fresh term at the helm this year.

However, it faces a stiff challenge from the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which is determined to make electoral inroads in Gujarat after its spectacular Assembly poll wins in Punjab.

The Congress, too, is in the race in the hope of unseating the BJP from power. (ANI)

Big Khela In WB, TMC May Not Survive In December: BJP MLA

Stating that there will be a ‘big khela’ in West Bengal, Bharatiya Janata Party MLA Agnimitra Paul on Tuesday claimed that the Trinamool Congress-led state government would not survive after December this year.

The leader further claimed that over 30 MLAs of the ruling TMC are in touch with the BJP and that the Mamata Banerjee-led government’s “existence is at stake”.
“There will be a ‘khela’ here in December. More than 30 TMC MLAs are in contact with our party. They know that their Govt will not continue for long after December. Their existence is at stake,” Paul told ANI.

The BJP leader also claimed that West Bengal is moving towards a “financial emergency” while accusing Mamata of running a “bankrupt government”.

“We will not tell the strategy, but something will happen. Our leadership is repeatedly claiming that there will be a big khela in December. We are moving towards a financial emergency. It is a bankrupt government. They do not have money. How would they work? 50 per cent of those running the state are in jail. The rest 50 per cent will also go to jail. Who will run the government?” she said.

The BJP leader’s remarks come weeks after the party’s state president Sukanta Majumdar claimed in September that Mamata would be arrested and that over 40 TMC leaders were in touch with the BJP.

He had further gone on to claim that the TMC government will fall in December.

“Mamata Banerjee may be arrested by December. 41 TMC people’s names are with top leadership. The government will fall in December,” Majumdar had claimed.

Similar claims were also made by BJP leader and film star Mithun Chakraborty who had claimed to be in touch with TMC MLAs.

“I am in touch with 21 MLAs of Mamata Banerjee’s party, I said this earlier, and again, I stand by my point. I request you just wait for the time,” added Mithun Chakraborty.

Earlier, the Leader of the Opposition in West Bengal, Suvendu Adhikari said that the ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC) won’t last even for the next six months in the state.

His remarks came after the ruling party put up posters claiming that a “new and reformed TMC” come in the next six months.

“Enforcement Directorate(ED) and Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) are doing their job. This party (TMC) will not last for even six months, December is their deadline,” LoP Suvendu Adhikari had said in Purba Medinipur. (ANI)

Modi Surprises BJP Workers At Kamalam; Enjoys Light Chat

After power-packed campaigning and addressing four rallies, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday chose to go to ‘Kamalam’, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) headquarters in Gandhinagar, and spend some time with party workers and colleagues.

While his sudden visit was surprising for many, it was a pleasant meeting for quite a few who spent a couple of decades working for the party.

Sources told ANI that it was a “light and fun” conversation as the Prime Minister walked into the Kamalam office and instead of going into a room, he chose to sit in the open area and on the benches. Initially, only a few people who were working in the party office late in the night came and welcomed the Prime Minister. However, PM Modi asked that everyone who was there in the party office should be called.

Much of the conversation between the Prime Minister and party workers were on how each of them was doing and whether they were maintaining good health.

Modi, who is known to focus on the tiniest of details, even checked with party workers whether their food gets arranged properly, as most of them work at the party headquarters for long hours, especially during the elections time.

A source told ANI that the youth workers who have been associated with the BJP for not long were really impressed to see that the Prime Minister addressed most of the old party workers by their names and even joked with them rekindling the memories that dated back years ago.

In fact, some woman workers who were at the party office and interacted with the Prime Minister also got emotional with PM Modi’s gesture and the kind of love and respect how he had for his party colleagues despite being in such a high office, a source said.

PM Modi spent over 40 minutes in the party office where he was accompanied by Gujarat BJP state president CR Paatil, Gujarat MOS Home Harsh Sanghvi, and party general secretary Pardeep Singh Vaghela, amongst others.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi who is in poll-bound Gujarat, on Sunday addressed rallies in Veraval, Dhorarji, Amreli, and Botad.

Earlier on Sunday, he reached the Somnath temple to offer prayers.

The Assembly polls in Gujarat will be conducted in two phases, on December 1 and 5. The counting of votes will take place, along with those of Himachal Pradesh, on December 8.

The state has been a BJP stronghold for a long and the party has set its sights on returning to power with a handsome majority this time as well.

However, it faces a stiff electoral challenge from the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which has named Isudan Gadhvi as its chief ministerial candidate.

Congress is also hoping to put its best electoral foot forward to unseat the BJP government. (ANI)
