Maharashtra: Is everything not okay between Congress and Thackeray group? Nana Patole said- Uddhav did not pick up the phone

In the Lok Sabha elections, Congress emerged as the largest party in Maharashtra. Congress won the maximum number of 13 seats in Maharashtra. After this, the Thackeray group got 9 seats and the Sharad Pawar group got 8 seats in the Mahavikas Aghadi. After this election, the confidence of the leaders of the Mahavikas Aghadi has definitely increased, but now there is talk of displeasure regarding the Legislative Council elections. The reason for displeasure is that the state Congress President Nana Patole has claimed that he had called the head of the Thackeray faction, Uddhav Thackeray, but he did not pick up the phone.

The Thackeray faction has announced candidates for all four seats of the Legislative Council in Maharashtra. Congress is upset with the announcement of candidates by the Thackeray faction. Congress has demanded the Thackeray group to withdraw its candidates from Konkan and Nashik seats. Nana Patole has said that Uddhav Thackeray has announced the candidates for the Legislative Council elections.

Uddhav fielded a candidate without informing him

Regarding the Thackeray faction, Nana Patole said that Uddhav has fielded his candidates in the Legislative Council without any discussion. It would have been better if he had fielded them after discussion. We tried to contact Uddhav, but the talks could not take place. The last date for withdrawal of candidates’ names is June 12. In such a situation, let’s see tomorrow and then talk further.

Patole also tried to do damage control

So far, Nana Patole has tried to indicate that everything is going well in the Maha Vikas Aghadi. There is no resentment and disagreement. Patole said that all the MPs are meeting him. Discussions are going on with everyone. There will be a routine. We will work as Maha Vikas Aghadi. We wanted everyone to have a joint discussion on the Legislative Council candidates and then take a decision.

When is the voting for the Legislative Council elections?

Voting will be held on June 26 for the four constituencies of the Legislative Council – Mumbai Teachers and Mumbai Graduates, Konkan Division Graduates, Nashik Division Teachers area. Earlier the election was to be held on June 7, but the teachers’ unions had requested to postpone the voting date due to school holidays. Now every party has geared up for this election.
