Senior Congress Leader Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil resigned as an MLA and is all set join Bharatiya Janta Party(BJP). Vikhe said, "I didn't even campaign for the party during Lok Sabha elections. I don't doubt High Command; they had given me an opportunity by making me the Leader of Opposition. I tried to do good work but the situation made me resign."
Apart from Vikhe Patil, former Congress minister Abdul Sattar had quit the party too. "8 to 10 Congress MLAs are in touch with the BJP. Disappointment with Congress leadership in state and their way of functioning are the reason behind our decision. State leadership is destroying the party here," said Abdul Sattar after tendering his resignation.
