Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Retaliating against the former Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan’s offer to Congress leader and former chief minister Kamal Nath to join BJP by taking the name of Lord Ram, Congress on Monday offered the veteran BJP leader to join Congress and become the Lok Sabha candidate from their side.
President of Congress’ RTI wing Girish Joshi and divisional spokesperson Vivek Khandelwal offered Mahajan to join congress with the slogan of ‘Jai Shri Ram and Jai Samvidhan’.
“Country is witnessing the ‘murder’ of the country's constitution given by Baba Ambedkar and senior BJP leaders are doing the same. We offer Mahajan to join the Congress party and to become the Lok Sabha candidate, getting a chance to save the constitution,” Joshi said.
He added that Mahajan has recently offered Kamal Nath to join BJP but she should join Congress.
“She is a veteran party leader who is sidelined by her own party. She should stand up against ‘tyranny’ and must come with us to save the nation,” Joshi added.
Mahajan had offered Kamal Nath to join BJP
Notably, Mahajan had offered Nath to join BJP and said, “If he wants to come and do good work for the nation then he should join by taking Ram’s (Lord Rama) name. What is the harm in it?”
She had said that the country is moving on the path of development and everyone has to work together for development.
