Not quitting BJP: Pankaja Munde

MUMBAI: Breaking her silence on speculations regarding her future political course, BJP leader Pankaja Munde on Tuesday said she was not leaving the party, a day after she removed ‘BJP’ from her Twitter bio.

Political circles were abuzz since Sunday when Pankaja wrote a Facebook post on her “future journey” in view of changed political circumstances in Maharashtra where the Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress came together to form a Government.

“I am not leaving the party. Defection is not in my blood,” Pankaja told reporters.

Pankaja, daughter of BJP stalwart late Gopinath Munde, also denied rumours that her act of removing “BJP” from her twitter bio was aimed at putting pressure on her party. (AGENCIES)
