Politics will heat up regarding the cabinet in Maharashtra! BJP’s Pankaja Munde expressed displeasure

After 40 days of the formation of the Shinde government in Maharashtra, when the cabinet was expanded, objections started being filed regarding this. Women’s rights activists had expressed their disappointment over not having a single woman in the cabinet. Now BJP leader Pankaja Munde has also expressed her displeasure openly about her ‘ignorance’. He said that senior leaders did not consider me capable of this. After Munde’s statement, his supporters can become aggressive and politics can heat up in Maharashtra.

Pankaja Munde said, when a minister becomes a minister, he also has to satisfy the people. I hope the new minister will live up to the trust of the people. I am also popular among people but if they think that I am not eligible that’s why I was not given the ministerial post. When they feel that now I am eligible, they will definitely make them a minister. Pankaja Munde said that there should be women in the cabinet. She said, I appreciate the fact that in the previous government, I was given the responsibility of rural development despite being a woman. Women should get such opportunities.

Pankaja Munde ignored in BJP

After losing the election from Parli assembly, it was expected that BJP would send him to the Legislative Council. However this did not happen. The leadership has been ignoring him for the last three years. During the Rajya Sabha elections, there was discussion that Pankaja Munde could be sent to the Rajya Sabha but it did not happen either. After this Pankaja Munde’s supporters expressed their displeasure at many places. Slogans were also raised against Devendra Fadnavis and Chandrakant Patil. In Aurangabad, a supporter had also tried to commit suicide. In such a situation, it is being said that politics can heat up due to his displeasure.
