Satara | Satara MP Udayanraje Bhosale is reportedly all set to transition from Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Udayanraje Bhosale, who is also the descendant of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, has been considering joining the saffron party for a long time now, according to reports.
Udayanraje’s meeting with chief minister Devendra Fadnavis on Tuesday evening sparked speculation about the former exploring the possibility of joining the BJP.
However, Raje clarified the rumors and assured the people that he had met CM Fadnavis only to discuss the flood situation.
Satara is currently facing a massive flood crisis, with a huge loss of humans and property.
Udayanraje was recently elected for the third time from the Satara Lok Sabha seat as NCP member of parliament.
It is believed that Uadayanraje had tried to defect to BJP though party chief Sharad Pawar was successful in convincing him to stay back by offering a party ticket to fight elections.
Reacting to Udayanraje’s meeting with Fadnavis, NCP leader Ajit Pawar said, “Udayanraje went to meet CM to discuss flood-related issues as Satara district is one of the regions affected by it. There is nothing wrong with meeting the CM to seek help.”
