On the first-ever Maha-Adhiveshan of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) after 14 years of its formation, one of its members left the party and joined hands with Nationalist Congress Party (NCP). 

Narendra Patil is the son of the farmer Dharma Patil who committed suicide in Mantralaya during Devendra Fadnavis' tenure as Chief Minister of Maharashtra. 

Patil joined NCP in the presence of party chief Sharad Pawar and Ajit Pawar. NCP held a review meeting of its minority wing in Mumbai and Patil's induction was also carried out here. 

Narendra Patil had joined MNS in September 2019 in the presence of party chief Raj Thackeray. MNS fielded Patil from Dhule constituency in the assembly election held the last year. However, Patil had to face defeat in the assembly polls. 

In the meeting, Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar, Jayant Patil, Supriya Sule, Nawab Malik and others were present. 

Patil was inducted into the NCP on the same day when Amit Thackeray, son of Raj Thackeray, was appointed as the MNS leader.

The MNS has also changed its flag to all saffron with a royal stamp - used during Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj's rule - written on the same.
