With the BJP reportedly not inclined to renominate Sarvabhouma Bagali, MLA for Indi, he has decided to quit the party in a day or two.

One of the primary reasons for denial of ticket is believed to his criticism of Minister for Medical Education S.A. Ramdas and Deputy Chief Minister R. Ashok. — Staff Correspondent
