Toppling of Jharkhand govt: Chandrashekhar Bawankule deny involvement

Chandrashekhar Bawankule

Nagpur: Former Maharashtra minister for energy and former BJP MLA from Kamptee constituency Chandrashekhar Bawankule has strongly refuted the allegation that he was involved in the attempt to unseat the Jharkhand government, led by Chief Minister Hemant Soren.

Bawankule told media persons here on Monday that the allegations were absolutely false and an attempt to defame the BJP. “I have not even seen Jharkhand’s boundary. I don’t know Jharkhand’s history and I have never been to that state. So how can I pull down the government there? And do I have the capacity to do anything like that?” Bawankule asked.

“I am a very small (BJP) worker. I work in Maharashtra as my party’s general secretary. I have no relation with Jharkhand. When I have not even seen Jharkhand, I have no capacity to pull down the government there and somebody is hatching a conspiracy to defame the BJP,” he added. “I don’t know how my name cropped up in this matter. The police will investigate. I repeat that I simply don’t have the capacity to pull down a government. I am not such a big man.”
