No Question of Kamal Nath & Nakul Nath Joining BJP, Says Loyalist Sajjan

Will former chief minister Kamal Nath and his son Nakul Nath defect to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)? This is the subject of intense conjecture in Madhya Pradesh politics. Sajjan Singh Verma, a close aide to Kamal Nath, has categorically refuted these rumours amidst this intrigue.

The Assurance

Verma asserts unequivocally that Kamal Nath and Nakul Nath would never join the BJP. Nakul plans to run on a Congress ticket for the Chhindwara Lok Sabha constituency. This assurance follows heated conversations about Madhya Pradesh election preparations with Rahul Gandhi, Kamal Nath, and other party leaders.

The Drama Unfolds

The play took place over two days in Madhya Pradesh and New Delhi. Verma explains, “We met for an hour and a half discussing Rahul Gandhi’s Nyay Yatra and the 29 Madhya Pradesh Lok Sabha seats. In a day or two, he (Kamal Nath) promised to travel to Bhopal for meetings.

Small Incidents in Politics

Although these are isolated occurrences, Verma admits that leaders of any political party might become agitated. “Can a senior leader leave his party over such a trivial issue?” he asks rhetorically. Verma again underlines that neither Kamal Nath nor Nakul Nath have expressed any intention to quit the Congress. He queries, “Why is this question even being raised?”

The Battle for Chhindwara

Congress has maintained a bastion in Chhindwara, a Nath stronghold, for many years. The BJP has tried unsuccessfully to unseat Kamal Nath from this seat despite waves of Modi. Nath Senior won both in 2014 and 2019 with significant margins. This constituency is essential historically since it was in this very location that Indira Gandhi famously referred to Kamal Nath as her “third son.”

The BJP will have to fight hard for Chhindwara, but Verma’s claim that Kamal and Nakul Nath will always support the Congress stands. The Nath legacy is still deeply ingrained in their party, even though the political chessboard constantly changes.
