"I was not happy with the party leadership continuously neglecting me for over 10 years. So I have resigned from the party," says Jaisingrao Gaikwad Patil to news agency, ANI.
“I am willing to work for the party, but the party is not giving me chance, hence I took this step,” Gaikwad Patil, told PTI.
In his letter to Chandrakant Patil, Jaisingrao Gaikwad Patil said he was resigning from the state BJP unit and the primary membership of the party.
“I don’t want to be a Member of Parliament or a Member of the Legislative Assembly now. I wish to work for strengthening the party and I am asking for such responsibility since a decade. But still, the party didn’t give me a chance. The party doesn’t want those who have made efforts to raise the party in the state,” he claimed, reported PTI.
