New Delhi, 18/8: Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, who was in the state capital on Thursday, said he did not see any reason to worry if a few leaders quit the party and join the BJP.
Addressing the mediapersons, he said, “It is a blessing in disguise if a few leaders quit the party, new faces will get an opportunity to rise in the cadre.”
He was reacting to the question of some Congress leaders and workers abandoning the party to join the BJP or others. In the last one decade at least 40 Congress leaders and sitting MLAs have quit the party and joined the BJP. A few of them were accommodated in the state government. In 2020-21, eight MLAs were renominated on the BJP symbol in bypolls and got elected to the Assembly.
