City NCP President Gajanan Shelar and other leaders assured the activists that he will communicate their disapproval to the party president RR Patil.
Meanwhile, Congress office bearers in Nandgaon Assembly constituency in the district also started sending resignations to its state party President for alloting Nandgaon seat to NCP.
