“We have chosen Mr. Rane as he is a senior member. He is also a former Speaker and a former Chief Minister, who has completed 50 years as a legislator,” Leader of Opposition Chandrakant Kavlekar told reporters after Mr. Rane filed his nomination papers.
Mr. Rane also appealed to members of the treasury benches to vote for his candidature, when the election will be held on Tuesday.
BJP candidate Rajesh Patnekar thanked his Party and coalition allies for giving him an opportunity to contest.
