'Will announce in two days': Ashok Chavan on possibility of joining BJP

Former Congress MP Ashok Chavan said that he has not decided which party to join, and added that he will make up his mind in two days. Chavan kept mum when repeatedly asked whether he would join the BJP after serving ties with the Congress party.

"I cannot give explanations for every move that I make. And I am not that kind of a person who would spill every internal matter of the (Congress) party. I served my duty as a member till yesterday."

Chavan’s exit from Congress comes days after senior Maharashtra Congress leaders Baba Siddique and Milind Deora quit the party.

Amid the buzz that Chavan will join the BJP, Maharashtra deputy chief minister Devendra Fadnavis told reporters, “Aagey aagey dekho hota hai kya (wait and watch what happens”, reports PTI news agency.

Chavan hails from Nanded district in Marathwada region. His father late Shankarrao Chavan was also the chief minister of Maharashtra.

Ashok Chavan stepped down as chief minister in 2010 for his alleged involvement in Adarsh housing scam in Mumbai. He was also state Congress chief during 2014-19.
