MNS nominates ex-Uddhav man against Sena candidate in Thane

The Raj Thackeray-led today announced that it is fielding former man Abhijit Panse from constituency, where he would be taking on Sena candidate Rajan Vichare.

MNS also declared candidature of Suresh Mhatre from Bhiwandi Lok Sabha constituency where he would be pitted against candidate.

Panse is former head of the Bharatiya Vidhyarthi Sena (BVS), the Shiv Sena's student wing. He played a key role in the launch of the Aditya Thackeray-led Yuva Sena and was at the forefront of the protest against Rohinton Mistry's novel 'Such a Long Journey'.

While Panse will be battling Vichare in Thane, the BJP has so far not announced its nominee from Bhiwandi.
