IT COULD BE SENA’S ANAND PARANJPE VERSUS NCP’S SANJEEV NAIK FOR LOK SABHA BY-ELELECTIONS

junior-Paranjpe-3Shiv Sena will field Anand Paranjape, the son of the deceased MP from Thane, Prakash Paranjape, for the Lok Sabha by-polls scheduled to be held on May 22. Nominations for the seat will be filed on May 5. Prakash Paranjape, who represented the constituency for four consecutive times, passed away in February after a prolong illness and the leadership had been on the look out for a suitable candidate to replace him. Earlier, there were reservations about Anand’s candidature but there was no one to replace him. Though the names of ex-mayor Anant Tare and senior corporator Gopal Landge were doing the rounds, Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray asked Paranjape junior to take up the responsibility.
