Not all is well in Shiv Sena as Narvekar, the Shiv Sena spokesperson and the party’s suave face who was contesting the Legislative Council polls in Maharashtra, abruptly withdrew his name from the race.
Sena leaders claimed that Narvekar’s withdrawal was unilateral and even party president Uddhav Thackeray was unaware . There was speculation that the Sena spokesperson would join the NCP as immediately after withdrawing from the Legislative Council polls, he had a meeting with NCP chief Sharad Pawar.
Narvekar on Monday officially joined the NCP and, what’s more, he is now the party’s candidate for the Lok Sabha polls from Maval constituency near Pune.
So within a span of five days, Narvekar has gone to being a candidate who was desperately trying to get into the Legislative Council to now becoming a potential MP.
