Yuva Morcha leader Mohit Gupta bats for former BJP minister Anil Joshi

Bathinda, July 11

The Punjab BJP decision to expel two-term MLA Anil Joshi seems to have created fissures within the party with state BJP executive member and former Yuva Morcha state president Mohit Gupta condemning the move.

Expelled BJP leader Anil Joshi to join farmers at Singhu

He said the decision was taken in a hurry and that many facts had been ignored. “Joshi was a dedicated party worker and had been instrumental in strengthening the party base. The decision has been taken by the state leadership in a hurry due to its personal interests,” he said.

Gupta further said the decision to expel a committed worker would not only discourage others. Rather, it could be counter-productive for the party as it might benefit the Opposition.

He urged the BJP high command to reconsider the decision and send a strong signal among workers to ensure party’s good show in the Assembly elections. — TNS
