New Delhi, Nov 10 : Former minister Ramkrishna Kusmaria in the Shivraj Singh Chouhan government has issued a controversial statement by comparing Bharatiya janata Party to emperor Aurangzeb.
Kusmaria has complained of being unfairly treatment by denying a ticket and he is not alone who is experiencing this pain as there are many leaders who have expressed only pain at the ticket-distribution process for the ongoing assembly elections in the state.
Kusmaria said that the BJP “does not respect the elderly.
“I don’t understand what the problem is in giving tickets to the elderly. I believe that BJP is acting like how Aurangzeb had imprisoned his father and ruled. This is what they are doing now. Is this the way to treat elderly people? The party needs to respect such people,” Kusmaria said.
Kusmaria, a five-time member of parliament – he has won four times from Damoh and once from the Khajuraho constituency nearby. He has also represented the Pathariya assembly constituency in Damoh district. He was an agriculture minister in the Madhya Pradesh government and president of the Bundelkhand Development Corporation.
He said that the Congress party was in touch with him and that “anything can happen” in the run-up to the polls.
