Ex-MLA Pappu Kalani files nominations from 3 wards
On the last day for filing nominations for the Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation elections, residents of the area were surprised to hear that ex-MLA Pappu Kalani had filed three nominations from three separate wards (2, 13 and 18).
Kalani said, “It is true that I have filed three nominations under my party name Ulhas Vikas Aghadi, but I am not interested in being elected as corporator. So, if I find a suitable candidate in these wards, I will withdraw my nomination and will support those candidates.”
When asked why he filed his nomination under the Ulhas Vikas Aghadi party when he was campaigning for the NCP for the past six months, Kalani said, “I was looking at the future when I filed the nominations.”
