Won’t quit BJP, Modi has told me to wait, says Manvendra

Asked about his father’s health, he said, “His condition is improving and he has started reacting.”

Expelled BJP leader Jaswant Singh’s son, Manvendra Singh, who was suspended by the party last year from its primary membership, has said that he has no plans of quitting the party as he has been advised by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to wait till his suspension was revoked.

He was in April last year removed from party’s national executive for campaigning for his father Jaswant Singh as against the party’s official candidate in Barmer Lok Sabha seat of Rajasthan.

Manvendra, who is an MLA from Sheo constituency, said, “I will remain with BJP as Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself has asked me to wait and have patience. Recently, PM Modiji, who came to visit my ailing father in Delhi, advised me to be patient and wait till my suspension is revoked by the state BJP unit,” he said.

Asked about his father’s health, he said, “His condition is improving and he has started reacting.”

On his participation in party’s affairs, Manvendra said he was not consulted for ongoing Panchayat elections, and he felt “neglected”.
