Maharashtra Congress crisis deepens: Balasaheb Thorat resigns as CLP leader

Mumbai, 7/2: The crisis within the Maharashtra Congress deepened further with veteran Congressman Balasaheb Thorat stepping down as leader of the Congress Legislature Party (CLP) following differences with party’s state unit President Nana Patole in the backdrop of the elections to Nashik Division Graduates’ seat of the Council.

Thorat shot off a letter to Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge on being ignored by the Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) leadership on crucial issues.


Thorat, who wrote the letter last week, was not available for comments.


Thorat’s brother-in-law and three-time MLC Dr Sudhir Tambe’s son Satyajeet Tambe was denied the AB Form despite assurance forcing him to contest the seat as an Independent and win the election.
