Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) legislator Bala Nandgaonkar has offered to quit as group leader of his party in the Legislative Assembly for the lacklustre performance during the civic polls.
“Someone has to take moral responsibility and I am ready to do so,” said Nandgaonkar.
He said he would shortly meet party chief Raj Thackeray and ask him to relieve him of his post.
Nandgaonkar was the lone Shiv Sena legislator to quit the party when Thackeray formed the MNS in 2006. Though he could not enter the Lok Sabha, he defeated Sena strongman Dagdu Sakpal in 2009 assembly elections.
