BJP state president K Surendran shared the news of meeting JP Nadda with pictures of newly joined party leaders on social media. Surendran also said that many prominent personalities would be willing to join the party in the coming days. Surendran also said that JP Nadda wished good luck to Major Ravi and Raghunath.
Major Ravi is a person who has declared his support to Narendra Modi and BJP central leadership. He campaigned for the party including in the last elections. But later he also criticized the leadership of BJP Kerala. Major Ravi’s criticism was that most of the leaders of Kerala BJP are not trustworthy and many are working for their own gain.
In 2021, he participated in the program of Aishwarya Kerala Yatra led by opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala. At that time there were rumors that Major Ravi might join the Congress but he did not respond to this. The BJP’s entry comes amid continued criticism of the Kerala BJP leadership.
C. Raghunath was the general secretary of Kannur DCC and UDF candidate in Dharmadam in 2021 assembly elections. He is also known to be a close follower of KPCC president K Sudhakaran. Two weeks ago, Raghunath held a press conference and announced that he was resigning from the Congress.
