What are the major political parties in Nashik West Assembly Constituency?
The BJP and Shiv Sena are the major political parties from Nashik West this year.
Meanwhile, in a latest news development, the entire Nashik unit of the Shiv Sena, which included 36 corporators and around 350 office-bearers, resigned from their party. The move came in protest against the BJP's decision to give a ticket to its candidate MLA Seema Mahesh Hiray from Nashik West Assembly constituency.
The party members who had resigned had tendered their support to Shiv Sena's Vilas Shinde, who is contesting as a rebel from the seat.
“The BJP was putting pressure on our party leaders to ensure that we don’t work for Shinde and that we work for Hiray instead. We have resigned from the party,” said one of the Shiv Sena members, on condition of anonymity.
However, some people aware of the matter claimed that the resignations were part of a well-choreographed strategy to ensure that the Shiv Sena does not face pressure from the BJP top brass to rein in its cadres.
