BJP’s stalwart leader in the State, Kailash Vijayvargiya has always been in news either for his statements or for his working style. Although he was sidelined during Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s Government but now after formation of new government he is back in action. Once again, he has given a statement about Kamal Nath’s next political move, he has asserted that BJP does not need Kamal Nath and the doors are closed for him, amid suspense over the next political move of the senior Congress leader. The former BJP General Secretary was reacting to queries over speculation that Kamal Nath might join the BJP.
“I had said there is no need of Kamal Nath in our party and that is why the doors were closed for him,” he told the reporters on Wednesday. Speculations are rife ever since former MP Chief Minister Nath and his MP son Nakul Nath reached New Delhi last week. However, Nath’s confidant Sajjan Singh Verma had denied reports that the 77-year-old veteran Congress leader would join BJP. To a question about Digvijaya Singh’s comments concerning extradition of fugitive diamond merchant Nirav Modi, Vijayvargiya said the senior Congress leader and others like him were frustrated.
They know that their future is bleak given that their party’s leader has become redundant, said Vijayvargiya, adding, “So, in frustration they say anything.” Although it has been learnt that Kamal Nath had a talk with AICC former President Sonia Gandhi over phone after that his supporter Sajjan Singh Verma and others took a U-turn and have put a full stop about speculations of joining BJP, political experts opined.
