25 July :- On the backdrop of the agitation by the gross Maratha community on Wednesday, Maharashtra Swabhiman Party chief and MP Narayan Rane reached home to meet Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. Narayan Rane will talk to Devendra Fadnavis about the other demands of the Maratha community including reservation.
Though Narayan Rane is not in the BJP, he has supported the BJP. So what will come out of this meeting with the Chief Minister will be clear soon. Narayan Rane was responsible for preparing a report regarding reservation of Maratha community in the Congress-NCP alliance government in the state. Narayan Rane has started demanding reservation for Maratha community from the beginning.
In the last year of September 2017, he resigned to the Congress party. After that he entered the BJP and made a strong effort to get a minister again in the state. But BJP kept them away. When he finally realized that he would not get admission in the BJP, he formed an Independent Party of Maharashtra Swabhiman and BJP supported Praneeth National Democratic Alliance. With the support of the BJP, he also got a Member of Parliament from Rajya Sabha.
