State BJP chief didn’t help in my campaign, says Shiv Sena’s Aurangabad candidate
Senior Shiv Sena leader and sitting Lok Sabha MP from Aurangabad, Chandrakant Khaire, has alleged that Maharashtra BJP president Rao Saheb Danve-Patil did not extend help to him during the recent Lok Sabha elections.
“His son-in-law Harshvardhan Jadhav was among my rivals in Aurangabad,” Khaire said on Wednesday. Khaire, a four-term MP from Aurangabad, is a former state minister. Jadhav is a sitting MLA — he had won on a Shiv Sena ticket, and quit the party during the Maratha agitation in Maharashtra. An arch-rival of Khaire in the Sena, Jadhav had rebelled and floated his own party — the Shiv Swarajya Paksha. He is an influential figure in the Maratha community.
