A day before Rahul Gandhi’s rally in Ahmednagar, Congress district unit dissolves as leaders refuse to support NCP

Ahmednagar District Congress Committee stands dissolved as District Congress Committee president Karan Sasane had refused to campaign for the NCP nominee from the Ahmednagar Lok Sabha seat, Sangram Jagtap.

In a huge setback to Congress party in Maharashtra, the District Congress unit in Ahmednagar has been dissolved just a day before Congress President Rahul Gandhi was scheduled to address an election rally in Sangamner in Ahmednagar district, reports Business Standard.

According to reports, the Ahmednagar District Congress Committee stands dissolved as District Congress Committee president Karan Sasane had refused to campaign for the NCP nominee from the Ahmednagar Lok Sabha seat, Sangram Jagtap. Karan Sasane has also reportedly resigned from the post of Ahmednagar Congress unit president.

The Ahmednagar Lok Sabha seat has gone to Sharad Pawar’s NCP as per the seat-sharing plan between Congress and the NCP in Maharashtra. Ahmednagar went to polls on the third phase of 2019 Lok Sabha elections on April 23, but Shirdi constituency which falls in Ahmednagar district will go to polls on April 29.

On Thursday, senior Maharashtra Congress leader Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil, whose son joined the BJP last month, has resigned as the Leader of Opposition in the state Assembly.

Reportedly, Vikhe Patil had resigned from the post following a prolonged discontent over his son not being nominated as a Congress candidate from the Ahmednagar constituency. However, his son Sujay Vikhe Patil left Congress to join the BJP and also contested the Ahmednagar Lok Sabha polls on a BJP ticket.

The Congress party had also issued a show-cause notice to Vikhe Patil for allegedly involving in anti-party activities. Vikhe Patil was served notice after there were reports that he was campaigning for Shiv Sena candidate Sadashiv Lokhande in Shirdi.
