MNS leader joins in Cong candidate's walk around Shivaji Park

Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

MNS leader Sandeep Deshpande joined Congress candidate from Mumbai South Central Eknath Gaikwad in his 'morning walk' campaign in Shivaji Park area Saturday.

Though the Raj Thackeray-led MNS is not a part of opposition's alliance in Maharashtra, Thackeray has said he wants the BJP to lose. The MNS has decided not to field any candidates in the election.

Deshpande was seen walking with Gaikwad as the Congress leader greeted and spoke with residents of Shivaji Park area.

Deshpande, however, said he goes to Shivaji Park for his morning walk regularly, and met Gaikwad by chance.

"I wished him luck. There is nothing more to it," he said.

The MNS leader criticised sitting Shiv Sena MP of the constituency, Rahul Shewale.

"He has built toilets, repaired gym roofs, held health camps. All these things a corporator does, an MP is not expected to do this," he said.
