BJP leader Chandra Kumar Bose quit party

Kolkata, Sep 7 (UNI) BJP leader Chandra Kumar Bose, the grandnephew of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, has quit the saffron brigade, allegedly being ignored by the party leadership, and claimed the organisation was not going in the right direction.

Sixty-three-year-old Chandra Kumar Bose was the BJP’s vice president in West Bengal in 2016 and was dropped in 2020. He had also contested several poll battles on the BJP ticket but was defeated each time.

In his quit letter on Wednesday, he regretted that he received no support from the party, neither at the center nor at the state level, to canvass the ideology of the Bose brothers- Subash Chandra Bose and Sarat Chandra Bose.

‘Being with the party had a negative effect, Chandra Kumar Bose said of his reason to leave the saffron brigade.

He alleged that he could not work with the party “under present circumstances” and that “polarisation, vote-bank politics, and divisive politics’ had ruined the party’s chances in West Bengal.

There has been no immediate reaction from the BJP leadership so far.

He claimed that he forwarded many proposals on how the party should move, which were ignored.

The party is moving in the wrong direction, and there is polarisation, vote-bank politics, and divisive politics that ruined the chances in Bengal,” Bose claimed.

Bose had joined the BJP in 2016 in the presence of Union Home Minister Amit Shah at a rally in Howrah.

He unsuccessfully contested elections twice on a BJP ticket—in the 2016 state Assembly polls and the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
