Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh was present at Sanpada to campaign for Thane Lok Sabha by elections candidate Sanjeev Naik. The Chief Minister was present at Patel hall in Sanpada where he appealed to all to put aside their differences and come together to vote for Sanjeev Naik. Present for the campaigning for the Thane Lok Sabha elections for NCP-Congress-RPI candidate Sanjeev Naik, was the Chief Minister himself, Vilasrao Deshmukh. Speaking during the meet, he appealed to all the members of the NCP and Congress to forget their differences with NMMC and come forward to vote for Sanjeev naik. He stated in clear words that he has appointed Ramsheth Thakur to take up the responsibility to oversee the Congress Ministers of Navi Mumbai during the elections and anyone found to betray them would be dealt with seriousness. Although the Chief Minister was present to guide the ministers, the absence of many ministers put a question mark on the activeness of the Congress Party. Even the NCP’s local leader and Deputy Mayor of Navi Mumbai, Shashikant Birajdar was embarrassed by the absenteeism of ministers and was seen defending them in front of the minister. Later on ministers were urged to attend the meeting after which a small sized hall like Patel hall was occupied. The presence of Vilasrao Deshmukh preaching as well as challenging the ministers in Navi Mumbai shows the dynamism of Ganesh naik. Where on one side with the aid of NCP Supremo Sharad Pawar, he tried to settle down the differences with the NCP party, on the other hand with the help of the Chief Minister he tried to bring down the differences of the Congress party. Speaking to the media, he stated that winning of Sanjeev Naik was now a matter of pride for the. Speaking on Sanjeev naik, he stated that Sanjeev Naik was an able and experienced leader. When he was quested of the concerns of North Indians would affect the elections somehow, he stated that the distress of the north Indians was with the Sena and not the state government. The way in which unity is seen between the NCP and Congress, looks like the ruling party is seeing the Thane Lok Sabha elections as a testing ground for the upcoming elections.
