ITDC INDIA EPRESS/ ITDC NEWS : The ruling BJP in Madhya Pradesh has been hit by a flurry of dissent and internal strife, with many leaders openly issuing statements against the party and its state chief V.D. Sharma while others are said to have lodged complaints against fellow leaders and Union minister Jyotiraditya Scindia.
Close on the heels of former minister Deepak Joshi, son of BJP bigwig late Kailash Joshi, joining the Congress, many other leaders have come out with statements that underscore the fact that they are being sidelined within the saffron party, especially by Sharma. While some have retracted after meeting with senior leaders, others have given indications that they might join the Congress.
Former minister Harendrajit Singh Babbu went to the extent of saying he was facing a threat to his life from Sharma, while former Vijayraghavgarh (Katni district) MLA Dhruv Pratap Singh issued a video statement saying he might be forced to join Congress as he was being sidelined. Anuppur district general secretary of the BJP Akhilesh Dwivedi resigned from his post and primary membership of the party saying he was constantly insulted and ignored and that to find relevance in the party one had to have an ABVP (RSS-affiliate Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad) certificate (as Sharma was a former president of the state unit of ABVP).
Complaints against Scindia and his supporters who left Congress in March 2020 to facilitate the formation of the BJP government in the state have also started to find a stronger voice in the ruling party as elections near.
