Mumbai: Maharashtra BJP on Wednesday welcomed senior leader Gopinath Munde's decision to remain in the party after days of disgruntlement.

Apparently elated after Munde announced his desire to continue in the party, Leader of Opposition in the state legislative Assembly Eknath Khadse said, "I was confident that Mundeji would remain in the party and will not leave as he has spent his life for the well being of the party."

"He (Munde) would not do anything that is against the party and today when he held talks with senior leader Sushma Swaraj his grievances were listened to and he was satisfied," Khadse told reporters here.

Munde would now actively participate in the working of the BJP and further strengthen it, Khadse said.

"Munde is our leader and has been getting due respect since the beginning, however, there were some differences which are resolved by negotiations," he explained.

The leader of the Opposition also said that media reports, pertaining to Munde joining the Congress, were all rumours which "hurt" him.

Jubilant over her father's decision to not rock the boat, BJP MLA Pankaja Palve said she was certain that he would not quit the BJP.

"Every party worker in the BJP is like a family member to him," she said, adding that her father has played an important role in the party since its inception.
