New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah during a meeting with Jat leaders on Wednesday said that Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) chief Jayant Chaudhary has chosen the wrong path.
Referring to the RLD-SP alliance for Uttar Pradesh polls, BJP MP Parvesh Verma after the meeting told ANI, “On (RLD chief) Jayant Chaudhary, he (HM Amit Shah) said that there are many possibilities after the polls. For now, he has chosen a party. People of the Jat community will speak to Jayant. BJP’s doors are always open for him.”
He further said that BJP wanted to welcome Jayant Chaudhary to the party but he has chosen the wrong path.
“We wanted to welcome (RLD chief) Jayant Chaudhary to our home (BJP) but he has chosen the wrong path,” the BJP MP added.
