Double shocker for Congress in Maharastra : After Sujay Patil, 7-time MLA Kalidas set to join BJP


Daijiworld Media Network

Mumbai, Mar 13 (Agencies): Less than 24 hours after, Maharashtra Leader of Opposition Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil’s son Sujay Vikhe Patil joined the Bharatiya Janata Party in Mumbai, the double shocker comes to Rahul Gandhi led Congress party in form of senior party MLA Kalidas Kolambkar is reportedly set to jump ships and join the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

The 7-time Congress MLA, who currently represents Wadala constituency in Mumbai, has made his intentions clear that he was planning to join the ruling party in the state, according to the national TV channels.

Meanwhile, speculations were rife that Kolambkar was also set to join the BJP after banners featuring CM Fadnavis’ image were put up at his Dadar office, which is bang opposite to Congress’ Tilak Bhavan office. Kolambkar reportedly has said that he found the chief minister “very approachable” who had fulfilled the demands of his constituency.

“I don’t want to remain in the Congress anymore. Mr Fadnavis possesses strong will power for the development of the state,” The Asian Age quoted Kolambkar as saying. The daily also reported that the disgruntled Congress leader is likely to get a BJP ticket from the Wadala constituency for the upcoming Vidhan Sabha polls.

Kolambkar is said to be a close aide of former CM Narayan Rane, who quit the party to form his own political party. Both Kolambkar and Rane had defected from Shiv Sena to Congress in 2005.

    All these politicians are shameless. If these don't get a ticket in their current party they will jump to another party. What loyalty do they have and how the other party accept them? These people are not trustworthy. These politicians should be banned for life

    In PM Modi's India, one of the biggest problems of corruption in the heart of democracy.
    Secondly, weak 'Anti-defection law' and obsolete ' People's Representative Act 1951'.

    By considering the base cost of 2014 holdings one assembly election in India is Rs10 crores for the assembly segment. It is no doubt that no elected candidate will jump the wagon without the plum post and an open cheque of his will.

    Imagine today a nation which can't pay salaries to BSNL, Stifling Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) of funds(Let the nation also not forget that ISRO and Atomic Energy Commission were incubated in TIFR, which still remains the most prestigious institute, both within the country and abroad.), 4 lakh ordnance factory staff to go on strike of All India Defence Employees Federation (AIDEF) for better pension(Over 200 items have been declared non-core and they include tents, parachutes, and other items and their production will be outsourced), Starving Indian national Carrier Air India, closing down of our own prestigious HMT watches, the Modi government has been working to slowly dismantling 164 years old government institutions including the Central Public Works Department (CPWD) and so on
    The Modi government which funds the crony capitalist with 'Non-Performing Asset' through bank loans who make assisted escape with government help and taken citizenship in a new country with loot when 'Chowkidar' in duty.
    This is the same loot from the bank make 'round-abouts' in BJP' political campaign and buying opposition leaders all over the BJP is not in power.
    The BJP which promised the nation to make 'corruption-free India' is corrupting our own democracy.
    The lame duck Election Commission of India and saffronized Supreme Court in a new avatar, poverty eradication, and employment seem to be distance dream.
    Only crony capitalist and politicians are more blessed under BJP rather than the common man of India.
    Jai Hind

    All the bank loans to mallya or nirav and for that matter to dhoits of vediocon or uias of essar all given during khangress rule. Why you blame MODI for that.
    And for weakening BSNL Sam pitrida is responsible who asked rajeev gandhi to open up the spectrum to private ppl. Regarding HAL during khangress rule it was kept out of all dealings of UAF
    Just writing "jai hind" your hatred towards MODI will not be covered.
    Ppl like you who hate MODI /BJP will be defeated in the coming election.
    Better you start campaign against "EVM" now only.
    When BJP was defeated in 3 states nobody raised the "EVM" issue. Why

    BJP indulges in this unholy practice in every state be it Bengal, Andhra, Goa, Gujarat, Karnataka and now in Maharastra. Obviously they are targetting winnable candidates as their are doubtful of their winning due to the powerfull combbination of congress and NCP.

    All candidates and leaders who switch partied just before and after the elections should be defeated by the people and debarred from politics for the next six years.

    This is the dirty game played by the BJP in all states be it Assam, West Bengal, Gujarat, Karnataka and now in Mharashtra. Half of the people in the BJP are ex Congress leaders. Paoching of opposition MLA's before any state elections is part of their dirty strategy to demoralise the rank and file of the oppostion parties. After elections, Horse trading is indulged to overule the peoples mandate

    The BJP should realise that they will this time around the people will not give them the scope to indulge in all these dirty politics by giving a clear majority to the opposition parties.

    If Congress would not have done corruption and biased politics, till today Congress would have been in power. It is Congress mistake that brought BJP to come from 2 seats to 282 seats.

    You better blame Congress for its corruption and biased politics.

    Very difficult times.
    Suddenly the mood has changed against the party for which they themselves have to be blamed.
    First their 'so called leaders' should know when to keep their mouth shut. if they had done so the position would have been much better.
    Nonsensical talk has been the main reason...
