Narayan Rane set to launch new party
January 03, 2009 10:52 IST
The former Shiv Sena rebel on Friday said he would announce his future plans on January 6.
Rane's exit may affect the Congress' fortunes in Mumbai [Images] and Konkan region.
While the Congress maintains a tough stand against him after he publicly criticised the party for not making him the chief minister, Rane claimed, "There has been no effort to pursue me from Congress. Even if there were any such efforts, it would not have affected my decision."
Levelling charges against Deshmukh, Rane on Friday said, "Deshmukh deliberately delayed the tabling of Comptroller and Auditor General's report in the assembly, which had passed strictures for allotting government land to an institute headed by him."
Taking a dig at state Congress President Manikrao Thakre, Rane said, "Person who can't get elected from his own constituency, should not try to give me lessons in politics."
