Ready to join NDA, Narayan Rane says”

Mr Rane, who resigned from the Congress party about two weeks ago after a long-drawn tussle with its state leadership, had claimed three days back that Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had invited him to join the NDA.

Summary: Former chief minister Narayan Rane, who recently floated a new political outfit Maharashtra Swabhiman Paksh (MSP), formally announced his decision to join the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) led by Bharatiya Janata Party.

Maharashtra Swabhiman Paksh president Narayan Rane on Friday said he had chose to join the BJP-led NDA and conveyed his decision to Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. Announcing his move, Rane was quoted by the Indian Express as saying, "I have taken the decision to join the NDA". Rane was to be inducted into the state cabinet on October 6, but as he had not decided on extending support to the NDA, he was not sworn in as a cabinet member. "I have not demanded any particular department as the call has to be taken by Fadnavis and the BJP", he said.Rane said that the flag and constitution of the party would be finalized soon.Rane, who formed the party a week ago after quitting the Congress, had met chief minister Devendra Fadnavis on Tuesday. "Rane was assured of a cabinet berth".

While there has been attempts by a section of leaders close to Rane to lobby for the revenue ministry over the last fortnight, sources in the BJP said the party will not entertain any bargain or precondition on part of Rane. He is a prominent leader from the influential Maratha community and hails from Sindhudurg district of the Konkan region. Rane was the chief minister in 1999 while in the Shiv Sena, reported PTI.

He quit the Congress, alleging that the party had reneged on its promise to make him the Chief Minister when he joined it in 2005 after quitting the Shiv Sena.
