BJP doesn't trust its own, says Guj Cong chief

AHMEDABAD: The BJP does now not trust its personal leaders and so was once poaching the ones from the Congress, said the opposition birthday party's state unit leader Amit Chavda on Saturday.

He was once reacting to Jawahar Chavda being inducted into the Vijay Rupani cupboard on Saturday, an afternoon after the former surrender the Congress as well as the Legislative Assembly and joined the ruling BJP.

Jawahar Chavda, a four-time MLA, represented Manavadar seat in Junagadh district and is considered to be an influential OBC chief from the Ahir group.

He had submitted his resignation from the House to Speaker Rajendra Trivedi on Friday.

"The BJP is staring at defeat in the Lok Sabha polls. It does not trust on its own workers and lacks capable leadership. This is the reason why the BJP is getting Congress leaders to join it using greed and threats," state unit leader Amit Chavda said.

"BJP workers spend their entire life for the party but get no value within it. Just to win polls, the BJP takes away winning Congress candidates and makes them ministers," he said, adding that the people of Gujarat would give a befitting respond to this "insult" of its "mandate".

He claimed such movement by some leaders to the ruling birthday party would now not demoralise Congress employees who will proceed to struggle for the people.

Apart from Jawahar Chavda, Gujarat Governor O P Kohli Saturday also administered the oath of place of business to Jamnagar West MLA Dharmendrasinh Jadeja, who crossed over from Congress to BJP ahead of 2017 Assembly polls, and Yogesh Patel, BJP MLA from Manjalpur in Vadodara.
