Nakul Nath aide & Chhindwara mayor quits Congress, joins BJP | India News

BHOPAL: Chhindwara mayor Vikram Ahake, another Kamal Nath loyalist, quit Congress and joined BJP on Monday, just three days after party Amarwara MLA Kamlesh Shah defected to the saffron camp, in Madhya Pradesh.
Ahake, a young tribal leader, was given primary membership of BJP by chief minister Mohan Yadav and state BJP president VD Sharma at CM House in Bhopal.
More than former CM Kamal Nath, Ahake was known to be the discovery of his son Nakul Nath, the Chhindwara MP fielded by Congress for the 2024 Lok Sabha polls.
It was on Nakul’s insistence that Congress gave the mayoral poll ticket to Ahake in 2022. Whenever Nakul toured his constituency, Ahake accompanied him like his shadow.
The Naths find themselves increasingly alone as their loyalists desert them.
Ahake said, “I have joined BJP after being influenced by the developmental works of PM Modi and CM Mohan Yadav and the slogan of ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas’. I have decided to follow PM Modi and work for his welfare schemes. I am happy that BJP has given me a place in their family.”
