Former Maharashtra opposition leader and ex-minister Madhukar Pichhad took over as the state Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief replacing RR Patil in Mumbai on Sunday, a party leader said.

Pichhad's appointment comes in the wake of Patil taking over as state home minister last month.

According to a party office-bearer, Narendra Verma has been appointed as Mumbai NCP chief at meeting held here Sunday afternoon.

Verma replaces Sachin Aher, who has joined the government as a minister of state, the office-bearer said.

The meeting was attended by Deputy Chief Minister Chhagan Bhujbal and party chief Sharad Pawar's nephew Ajit Pawar.
