Maharashtra: Former CM Ashok Chavan quits Congress

Maharashtra's Former Chief Minister and Senior Congress Leader Ashok Chavan on Monday resigned from the primary membership of Congress Party. He also submitted his resignation as Member of Legislative Assembly to the Speaker Rahul Narvekar. Narvekar has accepted his resignation. Chavan was a Chief Minister of Maharashtra between 2008-2010. His father Shankarrao Chavan was also Chief Minister of Maharashtra.

"Betrayers" don't realise their exit opens up vast new opportunities for those whose growth they have always stunted."When friends and colleagues leave a political party that has given them much -- perhaps much more they deserved -- it is always a matter of anguish," Congress general secretary in-charge communications Jairam Ramesh said without naming Chavan.
Meanwhile Maharashtra's Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said, many senior leaders of opposition parties are in touch with BJP and soon some will join the BJP. He was speaking to reporters in Mumbai after  two former congress corporators of Mumbai joined BJP.
