Maharashtra: Anil Gote may spoil BJP run in Dhule-Malegaon
In what may queer the pitch for BJP, the party’s MLA from Dhule, Anil Gote has rebelled against it. Gote will contest the Lok Sabha elections from the Dhule-Malegaon constituency against Union Minister of State for Defence Dr Subhash Bhamre, with whom he has a running feud.
Bhamre, an oncologist, is locked in a contest with Congress candidate Kunal Patil, the legislator son of former minister Rohidas Patil.
Gote, a three-term MLA from the North Maharashtra town, alleged that the BJP was turning into a “gang of goondas”.
