Jadhav represents the Kannad constituency in Aurangabad, the region currently facing drought.
The MNS, however, termed Jadhav’s resignation a drama. “The whole thing was engineered by the NCP. The involvement of top NCP leaders is sufficient to prove it,” said MNS legislator Pravin Darekar.
Darekar said that the MNS has decided to ignore Jadhav and his accusations.
Stating that the NCP had no role to play in his decision to quit the MNS, Jadhav said: “I had resigned in a fit of rage. But, my supporters convinced me that my presence is important for my constituency in this hour of crisis.”
