Disgruntled BJP MLA from Katol Ashish Deshmukh resigned as MLA hours ago. He sent his resignation to the Assembly Speaker Haribhau Bagade. This resignation was long overdue as Deshmukh had made his dissent public when he wrote a letter to Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis, asking him to become the torchbearer of the separate Vidarbha issue. 

According to our sources, Ashish Deshmukh is about to join the Congress at Rahul Gandhi’s public meeting in Sewagram today.
