After Sachin Ahir joined Shiv Sena, senior Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader and chief spokesperson Nawab Malik was appointed as party’s Mumbai unit President. The four-time MLA has held the position of Maharashtra Housing minister earlier. 

Born on June 20, 1959, in Uttar Pradesh’s Poonia, Malik was elected as an MLA four times in 1996, 1999, 2004 from Nehru Nagar assembly constituency and in 2009 from Anushakti Nagar assembly constituency. Malik came to Mumbai in the year 1970. 

Earlier on Thursday, senior NCP leader Sachin Ahir joined Shiv Sena in the presence of Yuva Sena chief Aditya Thackeray ahead of the upcoming Maharashtra assembly elections. This invited huge criticism from the senior NCP leaders.
