“I have decided to set up my own political party,” Rane said. Rane may succeed in getting himself into the Maharashtra cabinet on account of his ability to take on Shiv Sena.
Former Maharashtra chief minister Narayan Rane will float his own party on October 1, following BJP’s cold response to his induction in the party. Rane confirmed the development to TOI.
“I have decided to set up my own political party. The agenda and the constitution of the new party will be declared on October 1,” he said.
The politician said that in view of the Sena’s strong opposition to Rane joining BJP and the state cabinet, it was proposed that he float his own party and then join NDA as a partner. Rane had made up his mind to quit Congress after his son Nilesh lost the 2014 LS polls and he himself lost the assembly polls from his hometown as well as the Bandra by-election.
