Maha BJP forms new executive body
Mumbai: Maharashtra BJP chief Chandrakant Patil on Friday announced the party’s new executive committee for the state, and said that former minister Pankaja Munde will get a role in the party at the national level soon. Addressing a press conference, Mr Patil said that apart from her position at the national level, Ms Munde will also be made part of the state BJP’s core committee. Pankaja Munde, daughter of BJP stalwart late Gopinath Munde, had lost the Parli seat to her cousin and NCP rival Dhananjay Munde in the state Assembly polls held last year. She had been reportedly sulking since her defeat in the state polls. She was reportedly also upset over not being given candidature for the state Legislative Council polls held on May 21. “Munde will be given a party position at the national level soon. She will also be made part of the state BJP’s core committee,” Mr Patil said.
