Gopinath Munde
New Delhi, Jun 22: Putting an end to the high drama, deputy leader of BJP in Lok Sabha, Gopinath Munde on Wednesday, Jun 22 announced that he will remain with his party and will not join Congress or any other party.

After his meeting with BJP leader Sushma Swaraj, Munde claimed that he will serve for his "own party" (BJP). Munde's announcement to remain with the party has brought a big relief for the main opposition party.

In his previous meetings with BJP leaders - LK Advani and Nitin Gadkari, Munde could not meet Swaraj. Munde on Wednesday claimed to have solved all distances after his personal meeting with Swaraj in the national capital.

Earlier, Mude was expected to join Congress and other rival parties of BJP. Media reports also claimed that Congress president Sonia Gandhi might consider a cabinet berth to Munde in order to grab his support.

The crack in BJP was first noticed when Munde raised his voice against party president Nitin Gadkari's decision to appoint Vikas Mathkari as Pune president after snubbing Munde's loyalist Yogesh Gogawale.
