Udupi: State-level BJP leaders will decide about Former Minister and Senior Congress Leader Pramod Madhwaraj joining BJP. However, the BJP District Committee already has given the State leaders the green signal to join the BJP, said District BJP President Kuilady Suresh Nayak.
Speaking to media persons during the press meet here on Friday May 6, Kulaidy Suresh Nayak said that with regard to Pramod Madhwaraj joining BJP, the District-level BJP leaders as well as BJP workers have already discussed about Pramod’s intention to join the party. And we have already sent our views to the State leadership. The final decision will be of the State leaders, he said.
In reply to another Senior Leader and Former Congress District Vice President Muniyal Uday Kumar Shetty’s possibilities of joining BJP, Kulaidy said that anyone who agrees with the party’s principles or ideology, BJP will welcome them, be it Pramod Madhwaraj or any other leaders. However, the workers of the party are supreme in BJP, he said.
Anyone joining the party from the Congress party, they should follow the ideology of the BJP. When they join the party, Congress will never be BJP. Our party is based on strong ideology and can never be based on a person or family, he stressed.
