MU­SI­CAL CHAIRS

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

That Manohar Joshi will be los­ing his Ra­jya Sabha seat to Repub­li­can Party’s Ram­das Athavale was ev­i­dent at a mu­si­cal con­cert, Di­wali Dawn, held on Oc­to­ber 24 on Joshi’s home turf, Dadar, in Mum­bai. Athavale was given a seat near Ud­dhav Thackeray at the con­cert, a priv­i­lege re­served for Joshi for many years. Joshi sat in a cor­ner in the same row. Shiv Sena plans to re­place Joshi with Athavale in the May 2012 Ra­jya Sabha elec­tion to strengthen its base among the Dal­its.
