Thane: A prominent advocate and social worker from the predominantly tribal region of Jawhar in Thane district Rajaram Mukne has been appointed Secretary of Nationalist Congress Party`s (NCP) Maharashtra unit.

Mukne`s appointment was cleared by State NCP President Madhukar Pichad Saturday.

The 73-year-old advocate-cum-social worker`s elevation is being seen as an attempt by the Sharad Pawar-led party to expand its base among tribals of Thane ahead of the 2014 Assembly and general elections.

Mukne, a former President of Jawhar Municipal Council, also served as a Director of Thane District Central Co-operative Bank.

Mukne said he will ensure well being of tribals and raise issues concerning them at the party and Government level.

NCP is part of the Congress-led ruling coalition in the state.
