R R Patil may stage comeback in Maharashtra ministry
Mumbai: NCP Maharashtra unit president R R
Patil, who resigned as Deputy Chief Minister in the wake of
26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, may stage a comeback in the new
Congress-NCP government, party sources said here on Saturday.
Patil resigned on December 1, taking moral responsibility
for the Mumbai attacks, after facing flak for his `bade
shahron mein aise ek adh hadse hote rahte hain (in big cities
one-two such incidences can occur)`. He was later appointed
state NCP president.
"Patil has done good work for the party, helping it win
62 of the 114 seats it contested," party sources told a news agency.
Fifty-one-year-old Patil is one of the most popular
leaders in the 10-year-old party founded by Sharad Pawar.
MPCC chief Manikrao Thakre is also eyeing a cabinet berth
after the sterling performance of Congress, which won 82 of
the 174 seats it contested. "Thakre wants to join the
ministry," Congress sources said.
