Nagpur: Senior BJP leader in city Ravindra (Chhotu) Bhoyar triggered a hot debate in political circles by suddenly quitting the post of Nagpur Improvement Trust (NIT) Trusty. Chhotu Bhoyar was nominated by Nagpur Municipal Corporation on the virtue of being a Corporator.
According to Bhoyar himself, he resigned from the post following orders from the party. He further said that his decision to quit the post was the outcome of the discussion he held with Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on August 25. However, irrespective of Bhoyar coming clean on his move, political circles were agog with unending debate over the ground realities.
Talking to Nagpur Today, Bhoyar said that he is loyal and responsible worker of the party and is associated with it since the past eight years. For him, the party directive is supreme. Chhotu Bhoyar further said that he took the reins of NIT Trusty in 2012 and his tenure was supposed to end after two years. Still I am satisfied with the services I rendered during my tenure as NIT Trusty.
Even though Bhoyar is playing loyal worker card nobody is ready to digest the fact. When BJP was in Opposition the party left no chance to criticize NIT working and now when it is the ruling party, was it satisfied with the affairs of the Trust.
Bhoyar’s resignation has come at a time when three posts of political quota are already vacant. At present, the Chairman of NMC’s Standing Committee Ramesh Shingare and Chhotu Bhoyar were occupying the posts of NIT Trusty. Former MLA Dinanath Padole’s term had ended in 2014 while that of Anantrao Gharad and Kishore Kanhere came to an end in June 2015. But still the vacant posts were not filled up.
In this situation, one more vacant seat defies all logic. It is being rumoured that Bhoyar was paying the price of bickering within BJP on one count or the other.
