Eknath Khadse Exclusive: 'Fadnavis used dirty tricks; I was pushed out of BJP'

Six-time MLA, Maharashtra's tallest OBC leader, former Maharashtra Cabinet minister, northern Maharashtra strongman... there are many reasons why the departure of Eknath Khadse could have a bearing on BJP's fortunes in the state in the time to come.

Having joined Sharad Pawar's Nationalist Congress Party, Khadse is planning a fightback.

Asianet Newsable's Yacoob spoke exclusively to Khadse moments after his induction into NCP where he speaks of the humiliation he suffered within the BJP. In many ways, Khadse says, he was pushed out of the BJP.

Muktainagar's undisputed leader accused former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis of sabotaging his career out of fear.
