Ashok Chavan Set to Join BJP After Leaving Congress: Maharashtra Politics in Turmoil

The former chief minister of Maharashtra, Ashok Chavan, is supposed to join the BJP in Mumbai today, on one occasion after he left the Congress. This will bargain a serious blow for the party in the state in front of the 2024 Lok Sabha political race, where the Congress will contend close by Uddhav Sena and Sharad Pawar’s NCP as a component of the INDIA bloc. Chavan stated on Monday that he was not in talks with any political party, despite the fact that he did not provide any specifics regarding his plans for the future. He did, nonetheless, vow to say something in the following 48 hours. Various reports circled that he could join the BJP, yet Chavan denied any express BJP association on Monday, saying he had not taken any choices.

While there have been other high-profile departures from the Maharashtra Congress, this is the first that would directly benefit the BJP since Milind Deora and Baba Siddique opted to support the BJP’s allies in Maharashtra, Ajit Pawar’s NCP and Eknath Shinde’s Shiv Sena, rather than the BJP itself.

Rajya Sabha seat for Ashok Chavan?

They charged that Chavan appeared scorn towards the families of the dead soldiers.But concurring to Uddhav, it would be insolent to our military in case the prime serve sent Chavan to the Rajya Sabha.

“As an MLA, I have resigned from the Assembly. I’ve handed the Speaker my resignation. I have resigned from both the primary membership in Congress and the Congress Working Committee.

Swati Maliwal Assault: Kejriwal and Akhilesh Dismiss Questions; Sanjay Singh Speaks Out | Watch

Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal and Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav addressed the media together. When Kejriwal brought up the topic of the assault on Swati Maliwal, he handed the microphone to Akhilesh. He stated, “There are more important things than this.” As for the alleged attack on Rajya Sabha MP Swati Maliwal at Kejriwal’s residence by CM’s PA Bibhav Kumar, AAP MP Sanjay Singh has made statements about it thus far. He said he would speak on the matter and then cited Manipur, Prajwal Revanna, and the wrestlers’ protest against former chief wrestler of the Wrestling Federation of India, Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh.

“The prime minister said nothing while the wife of a Kargil hero was paraded in Manipur in her undies. PM Modi requested support for Prajwal Revanna, who had raped and molested many women. And the authorities assisted him in his escape. Swati Maliwal went to visit the women wrestlers during their protests at night, and the cops beat her up. Sanjay Singh remarked, “We have seen PM Modi’s silence on Hathras, Kuldeep Sengar. “The Party of Aam Aadmi is a family. The party has already made it clear where it stands on this matter. I want the BJP to respond to all of these questions, especially the incident in which the cops beat up Swati Maliwal. Politics shouldn’t be played over this, according to Sanjay Singh.

BJP’s Kapil Mishra commented on X, saying, “The third one is Kejriwal himself, who is accused of getting Swati beaten up.”

Kejriwal Sparks Controversy: ‘Modi Never Ruled Out Retirement at 75,’ Amid ‘Amit Shah for PM’ Claim

Kejriwal Sparks Controversy: ‘Modi Never Ruled Out Retirement at 75,’ Amid ‘Amit Shah for PM’ Claim

Amit Shah will succeed Narendra Modi as prime minister in 2025, when the latter turns 75, according to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who announced this Thursday. The prime minister has never said he will not step down at that age. Despite the disagreements between Amit Shah and some other politicians on Kejriwal’s age and retirement, PM Modi never said he wouldn’t retire at 75, Kejriwal said at a joint press conference with Samajwadi Party chairman Akhilesh Yadav (Lucknow). “Everyone in the nation is confident that Modi won’t deviate from his 75-year retirement age,” Kejriwal stated.

“Amit Shah’s appointment as prime minister is now confirmed. According to him, the BJP has ignored every opponent, including Devendra Fadnavis, Manohar Lal Khattar, Vasundhara Raje, Dr. Raman Singh, and Shivraj Singh Chouhan. The only issue at hand is Yogi Adityanath, who would be ousted in two to three months, according to Kejriwal, who also mentioned that no BJP leader had disputed his remarks against Adityanath, suggesting that Adityanath’s departure was all but certain.

According to Kejriwal, eliminating reservations is the BJP’s “big plan” if they win the election.

During his first rally after leaving Tihar, Kejriwal stated that if he supported the BJP, Amit Shah would become prime minister since, according to party policy, no one over 75 may hold any job. Narendra Modi will turn 75 in 2025. In response to Kejriwal’s assertion, Amit Shah stated that Narendra Modi will serve out his term and continue to head the party well beyond 2029. Amit Shah charged that Kejriwal was fomenting disarray within the party about the leadership, whereas there is none.

“I would want to inform Arvind Kejriwal and associates that there is no need to celebrate Modiji’s 75th birthday. The BJP constitution does not mention his ineligibility to serve as prime minister. He will serve out the remainder of his time as prime minister. The party is not confused,” Amit Shah declared.
