Mumbai: The speculation over Madha Lok Sabha constituency in Western Maharashtra has finally came to an end on Friday as the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has finally declared its candidate. The BJP has fielded Ranjit Naik Nimbalkar for this seat. Mr Nimbalkar will contest against Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) candidate Sanjay Shinde.
Former Congress leader Mr Nimbalkar, who hails from a politically powerful family of Phaltan, was the Satara district Congress president. He had joined the BJP on March 25).
The saffron party had welcomed Ranjitsinh Mohite-Patil, former NCP and son of NCP stalwart Vijaysinh Mohite-Patil in last week. But the BJP had overlooked Vijaysinh Mohite-Patil and fielded the Congressman. Two of the Assembly segments of the Madha Lok Sabha constituency – Phaltan and Maan – fall in Satara district. These two segments are considered to be Mr Nimbalkar stronghold.
Meanwhile, Nationalist Congress Party spokesp-erson, Nawab Malik said that both Ranjits have been imported from our Congress-NCP alliance. “The BJP did not have single candidate from Madha. Both Ranjits who left the battle, would not win; the NCP will win it.”
