Narayan Rane quits own party, joins BJP ahead of RS polls

MUMBAI: A day before filing his nomination papers for the Rajya Sabha elections, former CM Narayan Rane quit his own party, the Maharashtra Swabhiman Paksha. He has now joined the BJP. Rane told TOI he quit the Maharashtra Swabhiman Paksha as it would have been incorrect for him to be associated with two parties at the same time.
The BJP leadership offered him a Rajya Sabha nomination last week and assured him that his claim for a berth in the state cabinet would be considered in the future. Rane accepted the proposal to fight the RS polls.
