first_imgThe Maharashtra unit of Congress has recommended names of probable candidates for 26 Lok Sabha constituencies in the State, proposing only one name each in seven of the seats. Milind Deora (Mumbai South), Sushil Kumar Shinde (Solapur), Charulata Tokas (Wardha), Mukul Wasnik (Ramtek), Rajeev Satav (Hingoli), Manikrao Thakre (Yavatmal) and Amita Chavan (Nanded) have no competitors in their respective constituencies. The recommendations will now be presented to the all-India screening committee for final approval, and the candidates will be confirmed at the highest level.On Tuesday, the State Congress held a meeting to discuss names suggested from district committees for 26 of the 48 constituencies in Maharashtra. According to sources, the party will not contest more than 26 seats in the State. State Congress president Ashok Chavan, who currently represents Nanded in the Lok Sabha, seems to have decided not to seek re-election and instead concentrate on State politics. His wife, MLA Amita Chavan, is the proposed candidate for the constituency.The party has also recommended Abhay Chhajed and Mohan Joshi in Pune, Vishal Patil, Prithviraj Patil and Mohan Kadam in Sangli, and Utkarsha Rupawate, Bhausaheb Kamble and Raju Waghmare in Shirdi. All constituencies have three or more interested candidates. In Mumbai, Mr. Deora is the only name sent to Delhi from Mumbai South, while a number of individuals have shown interest in contesting from Mumbai North West, including Suresh Shetty, Kripashankar Singh and Sanjay Nirupam. Mr. Nirupam had won the election from Mumbai North in 2009, and lost in 2014. His plan to contest a different seat hasn’t gone down too well within the party ranks. While Priya Dutt declining to contest from Mumbai North Central, the local leadership has suggested her name along with that of Nagma, Hussain Dalwai and Baba Siddiqui. From Mumbai South Central, Eknath Gaikwad, Bhalchandra Munagekar or Uttam Khobragade might contest the election.last_img read more
