Senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader Eknath Khadse recently resigned from the party and joined NCP. Khadse who left the BJP out of anger, has once again targeted Former Chief Minister and Leader of the Opposition Devendra Fadnavis.
"I donated the Chief Minister's post to a Brahmin (Fadnavis)," he said at a function in Muktainagar.
While taking a jibe at Fadnavis, NCP leader Eknath Khadse said that he is kind. "Nathabhau (Eknath), you sit at home now, I want to be the Chief Minister, I was told. I thought of donating the CM's post to a Brahmin. People like me were sidelined because of him. I had to leave the BJP because of such people," Khadse said.
Khadse had sent his resignation to BJP's Maharashtra president Chandrakant Patil wherein he declared: "I am resigning from the primary membership of BJP due to personal reasons."
