Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil quits Congress, may join BJP

The Congress’s denial of Ahmednagar seat to Sujay Vikhe Patil first made the son leave and now the father has quit, too


Mumbai: After the defeat in the Lok Sabha elections, the Congress party on Tuesday suffered another setback in Maharashtra where MLA Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil resigned from his post. It is believed he could join the BJP before the Cabinet expansion in Maharashtra.

Patil has already resigned as the leader of the Congress Legislative Party in the state.

After resigning, Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil said he did not even campaign for the party during the Lok Sabha election. “I do not doubt the high command. They gave me a good chance by making me the leader of the opposition. I tried to do good, but circumstances forced me to resign,” he said.

Apart from Patil, former minister Abdul Sattar has resigned from the Congress. He claimed that soon 8-10 MLAs could leave the party and go to the BJP.

The Congress once again after 2014 could not win enough seats to secure the position of the leader of the opposition in Parliament. In Maharashtra, the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance captured most of the seats. Before the forthcoming election, the Congress faces a crisis.

Patil had resigned from the of the leader of opposition in the in March. He sent his resignation to Congress president Rahul Gandhi. Prior to this, Patil’s son Sujay Vikhe Patil had quit Congress and joined the BJP.

The Ahmednagar Lok Sabha seat is apparently the reason for Vikhe Patil’s resignation. He had sought a Congress nomination for this seat for his son. But it went to the NCP’s share as per the agreement of the opposition alliance in Maharashtra. This was why his son quit the party first and now Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil has left the Congress, too.
