Amin Pathan, others join Congress in presence of CM

Jaipur: BJP leader and former vice-president of the Rajasthan Cricket Association Amin Pathan and about a dozen other leaders on Wednesday joined the Congress in the presence of CM Ashok Gehlot, Rajasthan in-charge Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa, Core Committee member Mohan Prakash and other senior party leaders at PCC war room.

Pathan said he was in the BJP for 25 years as he was inspired by the policies of Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Bhairon Singh Shekhawat and other leaders for uniting the country.

“But in today’s BJP, only people from Gujarat and industrialists were being promoted. They (BJP) gave the slogan of ‘Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas’ but the reality is that not a single Muslim was given a ticket in polls. A section of society is being completely neglected. Hurt by such things, I decided to quit BJP and join the Congress,” Pathan said.

CM Gehlot said, “Amin Pathan joining Congress after working in BJP for 25 years, it is clear what a suffocating atmosphere the BJP has.”
