Senior leader Balasaheb Thorat dominates the party in Ahmednagar district. Many officials including the president are his supporters. Therefore, it is believed that Patole directly shocked Thorat by dismissing this executive. However, supporters of this Thorat are now believed to have received a free rein instead.
After Tambe filed independent candidature, Congress MLA Dr. Sudhir Tambe and later Satyajit Tambe were also suspended. However, even after that many members of the party supported Tambe, and action was taken by the state Congress. In the current situation, a discussion has started whether the Congress should take such action instead of campaigning.
Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee Scheduled Caste Division State Vice President Nitin Shivsharan resigned to support Tambe. Ahmednagar District President Salunkhe supported Tambe through newspapers. So the party issued a notice to him. Salunkhe submitted his resignation without replying to that notice.
On the other hand, on the same date as Salunkhe’s resignation, he received a letter suspending him from the party. So the resignation came first or the action of suspension? While this question was being asked, another party of action came from the Pradesh Congress.
According to this letter, now the entire party executive of Ahmednagar district has been dismissed. According to the order of the state president Nana Patole, the state general secretary of the party, Pramod More, has issued an order to dismiss the district executive. The state of the party in the district has deteriorated due to the suspension of the president and the dismissal of the executive. Thorat has more supporters in the district executive. So now it is believed that the way for this congregation to be active in Tambe’s campaign has been cleared.

The state general secretary of the party in Ahmednagar district, Vinayak Deshmukh, is considered to be close to the state president Patole. It is said in the party that decisions are being taken in the district on his request. On all these developments, Deshmukh said, ‘The party has already clearly announced its position in the case of Tambe. Party discipline must be observed by all. The whole situation is the focus of the party. Therefore, action will be taken if anyone is found breaking the party discipline. Not only this, many shocking activities will be seen in the next few days’, said Deshmukh.
