Chinchwad, 5 Oct (The Press Watch) – Due to not attaching the AB form one of the strongest candidates from NCP Prashant Shitole’s nomination form was rejected today by the returning officer. And so a good pitch has been developed automatically for the independent candidate Rahul kalate now.
Rahul Kalate politician and corporator from Shivsena is believed to be the last and strongest candidate opposite Jagtap.
Now it’s a golden opportunity and a do or die situation for kalate as, if he withdraws his candidature people will believe that he must have got managed with Jagtap and if he fights he will have to face party consequences as its “Yuvti”. But opponents of Jagtap from other political parties like NCP, Congress and BJP itself are believed to be supporting kalate. They don’t want Jagtap to be the next MLA.
Today when Prashant Shitoles form was rejected by the RO and he took a press conference he was doughted and rumors spread that he was plotted by Jagtap himself. And so there is no big challenger in front of Jagtap other than kalate now.
Kalate has continuously raised his voice against BJP and Jagtap in the Corporation. And so there is condition that most of the NCP, Sena Corporators and Congress workers can support him. He has the capability to unite Jagtap opponents. As Independent corporator Navnath Jagtap was seen with him recently it proves true.
But will Kalate become a rebellion and take a risk? Against Mahayuti and face the consequences after he loose. Will his strong relations with Sena supremo help him? Will he be successful in uniting the opponents of Jagtap? The answers will be cleared on 7th Oct as it’s the last day to withdraw nomination form.
