Jitendra Thakur
Nagpur: In a development that brought sheer embarrassment to students’ wing of BJP, the city general secretary of Bhartiya Janta Yuva Morcha Jitendra Thakur has taken to social media to vent his ire on the superiors for lending no help in NMC’s action against the establishment of one of the office bearers. Expressing his anguish loud and clear, Thakur posted on his Facebook page – “I am ashamed of being a post bearer in Yuva Morcha.”

And the story goes like this. Actually few days back, the NMC officials during its anti-encroachment drive in Itwari had also acted against the shop of Jai Sahajwani, one of the post bearers in Nagpur unit of BJYM. The officials found the construction at the shop was done in violation of the rules. Even as the NMC officials were about to demolish the structure, Thakur reached the spot along with BJYM president Shi ani Dani. The duo also rang up the senior party leaders to evade NMC’s action. Sources revealed that despite repeated attempts by Thakur, none of their senior netas took their calls. Later Thakur reportedly called up senior corporator Dayashankar Tiwari and Deputy Mayor Deepraj Pardikar. Both were then made to talk to the officer Ashok Patil who was present on the spot. During their telephonic conversation, the concerned official reportedly assured the senior leaders of resolving the issue. However after that, the official asked Sahajwani to pay up the penalty. The issue only ended after the cheque of penalty amount was given to the concerned official.

Post this episode, engraged Jitendra Thakur lamented his helplessness in helping out his own partyman. In his post he said that he was ashamed of being city general secretary of BJYM as he was unable to ensure justice to his partyman. He added that there are lot of encroachments in Itwari but Yuwa Morcha office bearer was targeted. He also raised suspicion over the intent of NMC’s action. He also charged senior leaders with being ignorant during the time of need.
