Shrinath Bhimale, leader of the house; Sunil Kamble, standing committee chairman and Siddharth Shirole, director, Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Limited (PMPML) have been asked to resign from their posts. The move, according to senior BJP leaders, is aimed at accommodating other party leaders to improve the party’s performance in the coming days.
