Chinchwad, 16th February 2023: During the by-election campaign for the Chinchwad assembly constituency in Pimpri Chinchwad, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has suffered a setback as a key leader, Tushar Kamthe, resigned from the party.

Kamthe, who is a member of the Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation and considered close to BJP MLA Laxman Jagtap, had been actively campaigning for the party. However, he announced his resignation from the BJP on Tuesday, which has been viewed as a significant blow to the party’s campaign for the by-election.

The by-election for the Chinchwad assembly constituency is scheduled for 27th February, and the BJP has fielded Snehal Jagtap, the daughter-in-law of former MLA Laxman Jagtap, as their candidate. Meanwhile, the Shiv Sena has fielded Omkar Lande, the son of former MLA Vilas Lande, as their candidate for the by-election.

Kamthe’s resignation has raised questions about the BJP’s prospects in the by-election, as he was seen as a key figure in the party’s campaign. The BJP has been working hard to retain the Chinchwad assembly constituency, which they won in the 2019 Maharashtra Assembly elections. The constituency has traditionally been a stronghold of the BJP and Shiv Sena alliance.

As the by-election draws closer, the resignation of Tushar Kamthe is likely to impact the BJP’s campaign and could potentially sway voters in favor of their opponents.
