Mumbai: Bad news for the BJP as its two senior leaders from Nashik, former MLA Vasant Gite and And Sunil Bagul will be joining Shiv Sena.
According to reports, these two leaders also met the chief minister and Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray at his official residence, Varsha in Mumbai. Former Sena Mayor Vinayak Pande, Yuva Sena’s Varun Sardesai were also present when both the leaders met Thackeray, reports said.
Last month, Balasaheb Sanap, a former MLA and Sena leader from Nashik, who was in the BJP earlier, joined the Nationalist Congress Party and later joined the Shiv Sena, before returning to the BJP. Several leaders at the local level in Maharashtra have been joining Shiv Sena and NCP ahead of civic body elections.
Sanap joined the BJP in presence of the Leader of Opposition Devendra Fadvnavis and the party’s state President Chandrakant Patil last month. Welcoming him to the party, Fadnavis said, “It is a very happy moment for us that he returned to BJP. I welcome him. Balasaheb Sanap played an important role in winning Nashik. Now it is time to make the party stronger. Many leaders will join BJP in the coming days. All the MLAs of BJP are intact. Everyone knows that the country’s future is not Rahul Gandhi and the future is Narendra Modi.”
