Party An­i­mal

India Today - - UPFRONT -

For­mer Ma­ha­rash­tra chief min­is­ter Narayan Rane has been in three of the state’s four ma­jor po­lit­i­cal par­ties. In his re­cently re­leased Marathi au­to­bi­og­ra­phy Zan­jhaawat (tornado), Rane, now in the BJP, at­trib­uted his 12-year stint in the Congress (from 2005 on­wards) to fate. He drew lots and chose the Congress over the NCP. No one’s con­vinced, though. NCP’s Gu­runath Kulka­rni had ve­he­mently op­posed Rane’s en­try. Plus, Rane wanted the CM’s post, which was held by the Congress.
