Keshubhai quits BJP, to launch new party

Ahmedabad, August 4
Capping weeks of a high-pitch campaign against Chief Minister Narendra Modi, his predecessor Keshubhai Patel today quit the BJP and will announce a new political outfit tomorrow to challenge the Gujarat strongman in the December Assembly elections.

The veteran leader, who ushered in the BJP rule in the state in 1995, walked out of the party with former Union Minister Kanshiram Rana, saying it had become a "one-man party" and declaring that he would form the "real BJP". PTI
