Former Maharashtra Cm Ashok Chavan Resigns From The Congress Party, Likely To Join Bjp

Former Chief Minister of Maharashtra Ashok Chavan has dealt a massive blow to the Congress party by resigning from his position. He has also submitted his resignation from his post as a Member of the Legislative Assembly. There are speculations that Chavan might now join the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Currently, there are two to four Congress legislators alongside Ashok Chavan who might switch to the BJP. Even some Congress municipal councillors are rumored to be joining the BJP. It is possible that the BJP might send Ashok Chavan to the Rajya Sabha from Maharashtra.

Before Chavan, Milind Deora and Baba Siddique had already resigned from the Congress party. Siddique has joined the NCP led by Ajit Pawar. Meanwhile, Deora has moved to the Shiv Sena.

According to sources, Ashok Chavan was unhappy with the Maharashtra Congress President Nana Patole. They had differences as Chavan was asked to contest the Lok Sabha elections, a proposal he declined. He viewed the wave of the BJP favorably.

It was speculated that Ashok Chavan was upset with Nana Patole even for resigning from the post of Assembly Speaker, believing that it was due to Patole that the government in Maharashtra fell. Sources mentioned that Ashok Chavan had suggested to the party high command that Nana Patole should be removed from the Speaker post and made the Maharashtra Congress President.

As Nana Patole left for Delhi amidst Ashok Chavan’s resignation, it’s now anticipated that two to four other Congress MLAs along with Chavan might also switch parties.
