- From the distance of BJP state president from the programs of Darshana, questions are being raised in the political corridors
After returning to the city as Minister of State for Textiles and Railways, the process of welcoming Darshana Jardosh continues, but due to the absence of BJP State President CR Patil in these programs, many questions are being raised in the political corridors. It is discussed that there is dissatisfaction in a faction in the city BJP after Surat MP Darshana Jardos was made the Union Minister. Political experts are also accepting this fact. After becoming a minister, Darshana Jardosh was in the city on August 17. There have been five events since then.
CR Patil was invited to these programs, but he remained absent. Whether it was a meeting of BJP leaders, a program to make Mahuva train daily at Surat railway station, a CREDAI program or a Chamber function, Patil did not reach anyone. There is talk of estrangement due to his absence in all these programs. However, CR Patil has denied this. He said that he was in Mehsana on August 19. There is no estrangement going on between him and MP Darshana Jardosh. He said that all these things have no meaning. Supporters of MP Darshana Jardosh say that no hoarding-banners were put up in the city after becoming a minister at the Centre.
