Panditanna Munde, elder brother of senior BJP leader Gopinath Munde, on Thursday joined the Sharad Pawar-led NCP in the presence of his son (Gopinath’s nephew) Dhananjay, and vowed to defeat his brother in the election.

Dhananjay, a member of legislative council, said he was still with BJP, but would take a "final decision" after hearing from the saffron party. Panditanna joined NCP at a function on Munde family's home turf, Parli in Marathwada region, in the presence of Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar. Gopinath Munde had earlier blamed Pawar for causing a rift in his family.
