Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - NAVI MUMBAI -

The Congress lead­er­ship in Navi Mum­bai has de­nied that the cross vot­ing has been done at its be­hest. It has blamed a for­mer cor­po­ra­tor and state of­fice bearer San­tosh Shetty for the cross vot­ing. Mira Patil is a close as­so­ci­ate of Shetty.

Ac­cord­ing to city Congress pres­i­dent Dashrath Bha­gat, “There were no di­rec­tions ei­ther from the state lead­er­ship or us to the Congress cor­po­ra­tor to vote for the Shiv Sena can­di­date. She was asked to vote for the NCP can­di­date. This has been done against our pol­icy de­ci­sion.”

He added, “The vot­ing by Patil is due to the di­rec­tions of Shetty who has worked against the party in­ter­est. Ac­tion will be taken against both.” Shetty was not avail­able for com­ment.
