Don't think any NCP MLA met state BJP chief: Jayant Patil
Maharashtra NCP chief Jayant Patil Sunday said no MLAs from his party met state BJP president Chandrakant Patil, days after the latter claimed that several NCP-Congress legislators are set to join the saffron party. "He (Chandrakant Patil) said that some people from NCP met him secretly...I don't think that anybody from our party met him," Jayant Patil told reporters here in response to a query over the BJP leader's claim.
He said he is concerned about the loyalists from the BJP, who are being sidelined despite working for it for so long, as the party is taking several leaders from the NCP and Congress. "As people from our parties are going there, some disgruntled leaders from the BJP are also approaching us," he said.
