Pune: Problems in Maha Yuti, NCP (AP) stakes claim on two assembly seats in Pimpri-Chinchwad

Pimpri: Voters in Maharashtra voted overwhelmingly for the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) in the Lok Sabha elections. The NCP (AP), an alliance partner in the ruling Maha Yuti, led by DyCM Ajit Pawar got a lone seat. The problems in the Maha Yuti are likely to increase in state polls in Pimpri-Chinchwad as party’s City Unit President Ajit Gavhane has staked claim on the Chinchwad and Bhosari assembly seats, where the BJP is very strong. These segments are represented by the BJP MLAs.

Replying to this, BJP City Unit President Shankar Jagtap has said that the seats belong to his party. The two parties appear to be at loggerheads over the issue.

Jagtap has announced that they are preparing to contest the Chinchwad assembly seat. His sister-in-law is the sitting MLA from Chinchwad. She was elected in the bypoll after her husband and former MLA from Chinchwad passed away after an illness. After the claim of the NCP (AP), problems are likely to compound for the Maha Yuti.

The state assembly elections are three months away. Ajit Gavhane has staked his party’s claim on the Chinchwad and Bhosari assembly segments.

Moreover, he has expressed the confidence that they would discuss the issues with senior leaders and will not give up their claim till the last moment. Gavhane is an aspirant for the Bhosari seat and has started preparing for the poll.
