BJP IT cell founder Prodyut Bora quits party
Disillusioned by the “subversion of democratic tradition in the government and party”, young BJP leader from Assam Prodyut Bora, who founded the highly successful IT cell of the party, resigned from National Executive Committee and primary membership of the party. He said that the party was no more a party with a difference. “Madness has gripped the party. The desire to win at any cost has destroyed the very ethos of the party. This is not the party I joined in 2004,” Bora said on Wednesday after sending his resignation letter to BJP president Amit Shah. He said he had lost hope from the BJP under its present dispensation.

“The country needs a different kind of political alternative. It is up to the BJP to be that or people will look for choices,” Bora said, adding that though he had got offers from the Assam units of Congress, AAP and the AGP to join, he was not keen to take them up. In his four-page detailed resignation letter, 40-year-old Bora raised uncomfortable questions about the style of functioning of Narendra Modi and Shah. He said that Modi had “damaged the democratic tradition of the country where the PM is the first among equals in the Cabinet system and not the first among unequals.”
