Joshi who belongs to Gujarati community got pamphlets distributed in city where he has mentioned that Gujarati and Marwari community in Kalyan had been used and remembered only when the party needed funds for elections and later have been side-lined.
Joshi who has stronghold in 2 lakh Gujarati voters in Kalyan (West) assembly constituency claimed that if this time seat was given to Sena on which BJP has stronghold as in past had won all four assembly election except last election when Sena was given the ticket and lost against MNS candidate, then he will contest election as an independent candidate.
Joshi who distributed pamphlets in city said that since last many years Gujrati community from Kalyan city helping BJP- Sena by giving their votes but party never given them any post or opportunity to contest election in city.
In pamphlets Joshi clearly mentioned that Sena and BJP used community for the party funding but this time if they do not given ticket then he will contest as an independent candidate. If sources to believe then from the seat, Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray had ordered Sena leader Vijay Salvi to get ready to contest from the seat and this reason Joshi who is interested to contest election from BJP seat have started attracting Gujrati and Marwari community from city who is major winning deciding factor in city.
