It was big day for the NCP party as the Navi Mumbai’s first Mayor Dr. Sanjeev Naik filed his nominations as the NCP-Congress-RPI candidate from the Thane constituency. Nilofar Shaikh and Sana Warsia were present at the Collector’s Office in Thane to report on all the action. Enthusiastic, anxious and determined – that is how the nomination filing ceremony of NCP candidate Dr. Sanjeev Naik can be best described. And this had to be, for the Thane Belapur Lok Sabha constituency is a trailer of who will rule the corridors of power in the next assembly elections in this region. The Thane Collector’s office looked like a fortress with strict police bandobast as senior most leaders of the NCP party arrived to stand by Dr. Sanjeev Naik as he filed his nominations as the NCP candidate for the by polls. The official submission of the form to the collector was however kept away from the media cameras due to orders from the Election Commission’s rulings. The prominent presenties were Deputy Chairperson of the State Legislative Council Vasant Daukhare, Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik, NCP State President Arun Gujrati, MLC Manda Mhatre, Navi Mumbai Congress Chief Namdeo Bhagat along with 1000 of party workers. We spoke to several leaders on their candidate. Dr. Sanjeev Naik – the man that is at the center of it all and promises to change the course of political hold in Thane Belapur Constituency spoke to NMTV News. Despite facing defeat last year, Dr. Sanjeev Naik expressed confidence over his victory. What did not go amiss was that for the first time, Dr. Sanjeev Naik was spotted in public with his wife. With nomination of one side filed and the other expected soon, the battle for the one of the most coveted seats is officially set to begin.
