New Delhi: Maharashtra Assembly poll is just a few months away and rebellion is already brewing within Congress party. Senior party leader Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil resigned from the party after being upset with the State Congress leadership.

Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil, who has also resigned from the post of Congress MLA in Maharashtra Assembly, met Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Tuesday. The meeting took place amid speculations that Vikhe Patil was about to join the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Speculations are rife that Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil may join the Maharashtra Cabinet in the upcoming expansion.

Earlier in the day, Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil submitted his resignation to the Speaker of the Maharashtra Vidhan Sabha. After resigning as a Congress MLA, Patil said that the situation has made him resign.

“I didn’t even campaign for the party during Lok Sabha elections. I don’t doubt the high command; they had given me an opportunity by making me the Leader of Opposition. I tried to do good work but the situation made me resign,” Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil said.

Another legislator, who was expelled from Congress in Maharashtra, has said that 8 to 10 MLAs are in touch with BJP who are angry with the Congress leadership. He also added that the leadership of the State is ruining the party.
