Continuing his tirade against Chief Minister Narendra Modi,dissident BJP leader Keshubhai Patel has appealed to the party workers not to back Modi for another term in the upcoming Assembly elections.

“I appeal to all the workers not to repeat him (Modi) as the candidate for the post of chief minister,” Keshubhai said in his latest blog on Monday.

“I am being asked to retain the active membership of BJP (by the party),but I would like to ask,does BJP really exist in Gujarat or is it a one-man show?” wrote Keshubhai,who has indicated to form a new political front against Modi,as he has not renewed his party membership.

“Is there a family atmosphere in Gujarat BJP?

Party workers are being treated like bonded labourers. Party workers were not remembered during the four and half years and some of them were asked to leave his (Modi) office,” he further said.

“The rulers maintained distance with party workers,but they maintained a good relationship with industrialists. But now,when the election has come near,they have started remembering party workers once again. Till now,he has adopted the policy of not repeating any BJP worker for one post,” Keshubhai added.

Since the past few months,the former CM has been targeting Modi saying the situation in the state has become “worse than it was during the emergency”.
