Pune (Maharashtra) [India], Mar 10 (ANI): BJP MP Sanjay Kakde on Sunday expressed his willingness to join the Congress party, citing lack of respect from the local BJP leaders.
“I am in touch with senior Congress party leaders. I will be joining Congress soon,” he said while talking to ANI.
Asked why he wanted to join the Congress party, he said: “Congress is the only party that carries all castes along. Workers are respected at every level in the Congress.”
Kakde termed Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis as a ‘friend’ and said that he had no qualms against the BJP.
“I am not getting the kind of respect from the local leaders that one gets in the Congress. That is why I am leaving the party,” he said. (ANI)
