Maharashtra Industries Minister Narayan Rane today resigned from his post in the wake of defeat of his son and sitting MP from Ratnagiri-Sindhudurg seat, Nilesh Rane on his home turf by a Shiv Sena candidate.
Rane has forwarded his resignation to the chief minister Prithviraj Chavan, sources said.
"Although Rane has tendered his resignation over the loss of his son Nilesh, the same will not be accepted. We will hold discussions with him and find a way out," Thakre told PTI.
Meanwhile, Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thakeray has left for Ratnagiri district where he is likely to address a 'victory rally' for Raut.
