MVA may fight Nagpur Municipal Corporation elections as ‘one:’ Maha Cabinet Minister Jayant Patil

Maharashtra Cabinet Minister Jayant Patil (NCP), on Tuesday, said that the Mava Vikas Aghadi (Congress, Shiv Sena, NCP) might fight the upcoming Nagpur Municipal Corporation elections as ‘one’ alliance.
His reaction came a day after the Union Budget 2021 was presented in Lok Sabha. A strong critic of the Centre-led Bharatiya Janata Party, Patil stated that just as the rural polls in Maharashtra turned out to be fruitful for MVA, NMC elections could too.
We won the Nagpur MLC election after decades. If, leaders of the MVA believe their party is bigger and more powerful than the alliance itself, then we will have problems. If we fight this together, we can surely perform better, said Patil.
The senior NCP leader further stated that as regional and local leaders contest for corporation elections, it was up to them to decide, if they would want to contest together or not.
The recently conducted State Legislative Council elections (graduate constituency) in Nagpur, ruled out in favour of the MVA, as Congresss Abhijeet Wanjari won against BJP’s Sandeep Joshi by securing 55947 votes.
Patil indirectly quoted this victory as a symbol of strength and said, Tables can be turned if elections are fought together. The Nagpur Municipal Corporation, which is currently governed by the BJP, would see elections in the coming 10 months.

Members of Yuva Sena, led by Nagpur District Yuva Sena chief Vikram Rathod, on June 25, ripped a banner supporting party member Eknath Shinde, which was placed at Chitaroli in Gandhibagh. Shinde, who’s leading a group of rebel Shiv Sena MLAs, is the man behind the current political crisis in Maharashtra.

Speaking to Nation Next, Vikram Rathod said: “Eknath Shinde was given so much love and respect by Shiv Sena and in return he has betrayed the party and Balasaheb Thackeray. We condemn his conduct. We are with Uddhavji. Any banner in the city supporting Eknath Shinde will be torn off by us in similar manner.”

Shiv Sena Nagpur Pramukh Pravin Barde, Dhiraj Fandi, Manoj Sahu, Sanjay Kasodhan, Vasant Dongre, along with other Shiv Sainiks were present when the banner was ripped off.
