Meghana Kirtikar, wife of Shiv Sena MP Gajanan Kirtikar, expressed her disapproval of her husband's decision to join Chief Minister Eknath Shinde's faction.

Gajanan Kirtikar, his wife Meghana, and their daughter all participated in the voting. Meghana Kirtikar told reporters, "I never supported my husband's decision to join the Shinde faction. I have voted for my son, and he will win with a huge margin." She noted that Gajanan Kirtikar has given his blessing to Amol as a father.

MP Kirtikar's clarification

Responding to his family's disapproval, MP Gajanan Kirtikar acknowledged that both his wife and daughter opposed his decision. He explained, "I did not join the party for fear of the Enforcement Directorate or for money. My reasons were different, and I had made it clear."
