BENGALURU: Senior Congress leader and former Union Minister M V Rajasekharan on Friday rubbished speculations on joining the BJP.
“I appreciated Prime Minister Narendra Modi for doing good work and that doesn’t mean I am leaving the Congress to join the BJP. I will always be in the Congress,” he said.
After his recent letter to PM Modi appreciating him for taking several welfare measures, there were speculations that he will tread S M Krishna’s path.
Former Chief Minister Krishna recently joined the BJP after resigning from the Congress. “The Congress party has given me everything. At this age why will I leave the party and join BJP? I believe in the Congress ideology and will continue to work for the party,” said the 89-year-old Congress leader.
Rajasekharan said PM Modi has responded to his letter thanking him for appreciating the good work done by the Centre.
