Shimla, Nov 5
The ruling BJP seems to be slipping grounds in Himachal Pradesh as even a persuasion call made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi failed to deliver desirable results. When poll mercury is soaring high in the cool climes of this hill, a call made by the Prime minister has created ripples.
On Saturday, the BJP rebel Kripal Parmar got a call which he confirmed while speaking to us that it was made by Prime Minister himself. He said that he told PM that he may have gone out of the race if had got this call two days before. I am still in canvassing and winning elections, as BJP candidate is going to lose and have no base in Fathepur Assembly. PM said he indicated that he might pull out of the contest.
The content of calls revealed that Parmar refers the telephone call as God’s ordain. He said he would not pull out despite getting this call as it was too late. The call from the highest office of BJP showed that it was burning a midnight burner to calm down the rebels if it could not force them to withdraw the nomination; therefore, the captain took the last shot. Parmar is being heard talking to the BJP leader that he has been insulted by BJP national President JP Nadda for the last 15 yrs.
BJP is locked in the multi-corner contest from Fatehpur assembly as Forest minister Rakesh Pathania was facing two party rebels including Parmar and AAP candidate Rajan Shushant (former MP of BJP) and BJP party worker Tilak Raj are in the fray against. Meanwhile, Congress has sitting MLA Bhawani Singh Pathania. BS Pathania won the recent by-poll after the demise of his father, Sujjan Singh Pathania.
It is pertinent to mention that the alleged call by Prime minister Narendra Modi is evident proof that the ruling party is derailing from the electoral ground here in this constituency, atleast. Moreover, it was beyond understanding that why winning MLA or Minister Rakesh Pathaina was exiled from his home Nurpur assembly constituency even after winning twice. When this query was tossed to a senior leader of BJP in the state, he said he was unfamiliar with the wisdom behind such decisions of experimenting with MLAs from here to there. On furthering inquiry over the fallout of distribution of tickets he added that it was high command and his opinion was never sought for. He also said that he demanded to blacklist such fake surveys as the party lost a recently held by-election on the virtue of such ground reports. Rakesh Pathania was also reportedly put in the fray from Fathepur as a number of Gram Panchayats from Nurpur got shifted to Fatehpur, which is considered the stronghold of the minister.
