CM Uddhav Thackeray has asked NCP leader Ajit Pawar to send back the five Shiv Sena corporators from Parner in Ahmednagar district who had joined the NCP.
The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena has slammed Shiv Sena for demanding back it's five corporators from Parner. MNS general secretary and former corporator Sandeep Deshpande has tweeted his views on the micro-blogging site. Shiv Sena today is facing the same situation what it had with the MNS party in October 2017.
In October 2017, Six out of 7 MNS corporators of MNS had joined Shiv Sena in Mumbai Municipal Corporation. Shiv Sena had played this game to maintain its power in Mumbai Municipal Corporation. At that time, Shiv Sena's surgical strike on the MNS left the party infuriated. The number of Shiv Sena corporators in the municipal corporation had increased due to the split of MNS corporators and joining Shiv Sena.
