Mumbai: In a big setback to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), its senior leader in Maharashtra, Eknath Khadse, on Wednesday quit the party which he served for nearly 35 years.

According to an announcement by Nationalist Congress Party leader and Maharashtra Minister Jayant Patil, Khadse will be joining NCP on Friday.

“Eknath Khadse promoted BJP in Maharashtra over years. I’ve been informed that BJP leader Eknath Khadse has resigned from his party. We’ve decided to give him an entry in NCP. He will be formally inducted into NCP at 2 pm on Friday,” Patil said, according to news agency ANI.

“He has quit the BJP after serving the party for over 35 years… He will join the NCP on Friday afternoon,” Patil told the media.

The NCP leader also hinted that other BJP leaders, including several activists at various levels, are likely to follow Khadse’s suit. He further said elected legislators could also leave the BJP at a later stage.
