Mr Bagde, who is the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly Speaker, was speaking at a meeting of senior party workers in Aurangabad yesterday to mark former Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee's birthday.
He said that in past, the intention of those who joined politics was social service and not self-interest.
"Earlier, a lot of thought used to go into deciding whom to induct into the party and whom to give the posts. It was just like the inquiries we make while selecting proper groom for our girls." he said
Now, BJP workers can only oppose murderers and mad people from getting inducted into the party, Mr Bagde said.
