Murmu will also be coming to Mumbai in a couple of days for campaigning and, hence, on behalf of Chief Minister Eknath Ji Shinde, I am appealing to all the party MLAs and MPs of Maharashtra to come together and support her in the upcoming Presidential election.”

Ask for reports, Kesarkar also slammed the former environment minister Aditya Thakre for the statement that was made with regards to the midterm elections.

We do not want to disqualify anyone but if they keep disobeying the whip then it is our responsibility to bring discipline in them.”
