Nagpur: Nana Patole who has resigned from the Lok Sabha hinted at forming his own party in future. Soon after giving his resignation on Friday and then addressing the media persons he said that he had joined Bharatiya Janata Party on an invitation from Late Gopinath Munde and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari. He said whatever he spoke was right and had tried to keep the farmers issues before the government but was neglected. Patole is bent upon seeing that BJP does not come to power anywhere. He said that he would be campaigning for Congress in Gujarat. As from media he has come to known that Congress will give a tough fight to BJP. Since being the MP of BJP he had been trying to remind them of promises that they had made in the manifesto and to fulfil them, Patole said. Since was a Member of Parliament of BJP he said he tried to bring the proposal of Sepatrate Vidarbha in house but Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with other BJP members opposed it. And when he brought the farmers problems the Prime Minister got angry, he added.
If Chief Minister can waive loans of industrialists like Ambani, Adani and Mallya then why not of the poor farmers, why have the farmers’ wives have to stand in line and if so then why not wives of these industrialists, he questioned.
Commenting on the scams, Patole said that the Prime Minister keeps saying that during his tenure no scam has taken place but this is not true as demonetisation itself is a big scam. The people who had black money got a chance to convert it into white. Thousands of businesses closed down, lakhs of people lost their jobs, isn’t this swindling, he asked. This just the start what the end will be nobody can imagine, everything is going against the constitution, he lamented. He refuted the charge that he had given his resignation at behest of Congress.
May form a party in future
Patole said that he had not taken any decision about the future politics. Right now his priority is Gujarat elections where he has to stop BJP from winning and he would proceed to Gujarat for campaigning against BJP. He further said that since the people had elected him he would discuss with people and then take his decision but it may so happen in future that he would form his own party.
‘Party treated me as untouchable’
Patole was all praise for Congress. He said when he resigned from Congress at that time the party leaders tried to pacify him. He said but in BJP nobody in the party tried to understand him in fact he said he was treated like an untouchable when he tried to put forth the loan waiver issue. As all feared Modi nobody was ready to talk to him.
