‘Red signal’ to local leadership’s demand for KDMC polls
Welfare October 25:
We work together in government, it is not our policy to stay in government together and behave differently. NCP state president and state water resources minister Jayant Patil said that priority would be given to the parties in Mahavikas Aghadi wherever they stay together. Expressing this view at the inauguration of the district office of the Kalyan District NCP, Patil said that the demand for self-reliance by the local leadership for the KDMC elections has in a way shown a ‘red signal’.
Replying to a question on whether Shiv Sena NCP and Congress will lead in Kalyan Dombivali Municipal Corporation elections, Patil said that when we discuss the alliance, no party should insist on appointing a mayor. “We don’t want to create such obstacles in coming together, we will think about it when the majority comes,” he said, avoiding further comment on the mayoral question.
Talking about the potholes on the roads in Kalyan Dombivali, Jayant Patil said that the previous government had neglected Kalyan Dombivali. However, the welfare of our government is a priority for the cities of Dombivli, he said.
Meanwhile, NCP state president Jayant Patil had met Pappu Kalani yesterday. Therefore, everyone in Ulhasnagar has raised eyebrows in politics and when asked about the visit, he said that Pappu Kalani had called him as a friend and refrained from commenting further saying that there was no political discussion with him.
The inauguration ceremony was attended by State President Jayant Patil, Housing Minister Jitendra Awhad, NCP Welfare District President Jagannath (Appa) Shinde, Working President Vandar Patil, State Spokesperson Mahesh Tapase and many other office bearers and activists.
