Ex-Union minister Jaswant Singh’s son quits BJP

Barmer/Jaipur: Ahead of the Assembly polls in Rajasthan, former Union minister Jaswant Singh’s son and BJP MLA Manvendra Singh Saturday said he has quit the party.

Kamal ka phool, badi bhool, BJP MLA Manvendra Singh said.

He announced the decision at a press conference after addressing a rally at Pachpadra in his Barmer constituency.

He said he was yet to take a decision on whether to join the Congress or not.

At the rally, he indicated that joining the Bharatiya Janata Party was a “big mistake”.

Kamal ka phool, badi bhool, he said.

When contacted by PTI after the public meeting, dubbed swabhiman or self-respect rally, he said, I am no longer in BJP.

Earlier, the MLA referred to the denial of a party ticket to his father Jaswant Singh in the 2014 Lok Sabha election.
