NCP MLC Dhananjay Munde calls on Raj Thackeray
Mumbai: Dhananjay Munde, NCP MLC and the estranged nephew of senior BJP leader Gopinath Munde, on friday met MNS president Raj Thackeray at his residence here, raising a few eyebrows.
Dhananjay called on Raj at ‘Krushnakunj’ in suburban Dadar and termed it as a personal visit.
He said he shares good relations with Raj and clarified that it was not a political meet.
“It was just a courtesy call. In the past too, I have met him several times. There is no need to derive any political meaning out of it,” Dhananjay, who quit BJP to join the Sharad Pawar-led outfit in July last year, said.
Dhananjay walked out of BJP over alleged differences with his uncle, who instead nominated his daughter Pankaja Palve-Munde from Parli constituency in Beed district.
He formally quit the BJP after resigning as a legislator even when he had three years of tenure left.
