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.
