A B Vajpayee niece quits BJP

She attacked the state government for showing favouritism to a selected few.

The dissent in Chhattisgarh BJP aggravated after powerful leader and niece of former Prime Minister A B Vajpayee,Karuna Shukla,resigned from the party on Saturday alleging the organisation is being run by a “bunch of powerful people”. She attacked the state government for showing favouritism to a selected few.

“Powerful people have taken over the organisation. Only a few leaders are running the party,” she said Saturday. She said the BJP is no longer the party of Atal-Advani and she was feeling insulted. She faxed her resignation to party president Rajnath Singh. A member of the BJP’s national executive Shukla wanted to contest this year’s Assembly polls but was denied a ticket.
