It’s a big embarrassment for the Shiva Sena as its MP Sanjay Jadhav has resigned from the membership of Lok Sabha
Bengaluru: Cracks in the Shiva Sena are out in the open. Its MP Sanjay Jadhav has resigned from the membership of Lok Sabha, saying he is unable to do justice to his own party workers.
He sent his resignation to party chief and Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray.
He said, "I've been a worker of Shiv Sena under the leadership of Bala Saheb. If I am unable to do justice with Shiv Sena workers in my area, then I have no right to be an MP of the party. So, please accept my resignation.”
Reports say that he was upset over the appointment of the non-governmental administrator of Jintur Agricultural Produce Market Committee (APMC) in Parbhani District.
"I have been following the matter (of appointment of Administrator of Jintur APMC in Parbhani) for the last 8-10 months. Now a person from NCP has been appointed as Non-Governmental Administrator and this is an insult to Shiv Sena workers."
Republic TV also reported Jadhav as saying that many workers from the BJP, NCP and Congress in the region have conveyed their interest in joining the Shiv Sena. However, it adds him as saying when he has not been able to help his existing party workers, "How can he help workers coming from other parties to get justice?"
But it is to be noted that the MP has sent his resignation to the CM but not to the Speaker who is the ultimate authority on such matters.
