The gamble taken by a Gujarat cop paid off. Chhota Udepur Superintendent of Police P C Baranda who took voluntary retirement was given a BJP ticket from the Bhiloda constituency.
Baranda's resignation was approved by the state government on Wednesday. He has got a ticket from Bhiloda constituency in Aravalli district.
He said that he quit the job because he wanted to work for his native village which is tribal dominated.
Baranda added that he wants to side with the BJP because he is impressed with the work done by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
According to Baranda, development has failed to reach the tribal town of Bhiloda because of its Congress MLA, who has occupied the seat for too long a period, he told news 18.
