Khurana won't work under current BJP leadership
March 24, 2006 15:43 IST
With his expulsion from the Bharatiya Janata Party virtually certain, suspended party leader Madan Lal Khurana Friday said he was not inclined to work under the organisation's current leadership.
The former Delhi chief minister told PTI that he would prefer Delhi, his stronghold, to the party which he alleged was being run by "political managers".
Khurana, who defied party directives against joining expelled leader Uma Bharati's 'Janadesh rally' on March 21, said he was a fierce proponent of Sangh ideology that the former Madhya Pradesh chief minister has pledged to pursue.
"But I am not inclined to work under the current leadership, which is being guided by a bunch of political managers. I will give priority to Delhi over this party under its present dispensation," he said.
Khurana, who has announced that he would launch a 'Delhi Bachao Morcha' against the court order on demolitions, has appointed BJP legislator Dayanand Chandela as the secretary general of the proposed front. The morcha will be headed by suspended BJP leader and legislator H S Balli.
Khurana has written to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh urging for an Ulhasnagar type ordinance to revoke court oder on demolitions in Delhi.
