Manvendra, an MLA from Barmer’s Sheo constituency ends his ties with BJP. He says, “Kamal ka Phool Hamari Bhool Thi (choosing the lotus flower was our mistake),” while addressing his supporters in Pachpadra.
Jaswant Singh’s family is not happy with the BJP since 2014 Lok Sabha polls when he was denied a ticket from the party. Instead, BJP fielded Sonaram Choudhary and Jaswant Singh lost the election.
Manvendra has campaigned for his father during the 2014 general election. He was suspended from the party for supporting his father, but he continued to represent Sheo constituency as BJP MLA.
Singh has been critical of Vasundhara Raje government since then. He did not participate in Vasundhara’s Gaurav Yatra during her visit to Barmer.
It is expected that he may join Congress.
