Keshubhai Patel quits BJP, may float new party

Saturday August 04, 2012 06:22:15 PM, IANS

Ahmedabad: Former Gujarat chief minister Keshubhai Patel resigned from the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Saturday and is expected to announce a new party soon ahead of the state assembly polls.

Announcing his decision at a press conference in Gandhinagar, Patel said everyone is unhappy with the way the BJP was functioning in Gujarat. "People are unhappy with the government of Narendra Modi. No one listens to the common people, there is no sympathy for them."

Patel and former union minister Kanshiram Rana sent in their resignation letters to the party high command.

Earlier, Patel held a meeting with Rana and another former Gujarat chief minister, Suresh Mehta, at his residence.

Patel, who has a large following in the Saurashtra region of the state, is expected to announce a new party Sunday.

Patel has been increasingly critical of Narendra Modi of late.
