In an exclusive interview with Nagpur Today, Navneet Singh Tuli, BJP Member, Former Congress Corporator said that, “I am more than happy and contended now to be a part of BJP! I was feeling very suffocated in Congress party. This was adding fuel to the fire by the statements made by some ‘Congress Party leader’ about the 1984 riots, which was not at all appreciated and taken well by many. Me being a former member of that vicious Congress circle, the statements sounded a totally false to me. In fact, as a Former leader of Congress Party, I never took any prominent post, since I don’t believe in the posts held and the power. I believe in functioning and working instead of just holding any posts!
My future plans are very clear, serving more and more people through BJP now! I would definitely strive to stand by my people in north, west, and one and all who shall need me.”
