MNS has planned a string of activities in Maharashtra to highlight its agenda of pride in the state and its language. Elections to the municipal corporations of Navi Mumbai, Vasai-Virar, Kalyan-Dombivli in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, and Aurangabad and Kolgapur, are scheduled for 2021. 

Next year, 10 more civic bodies — the powerful Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), Thane, Ulhasnagar, Pune, Pimpri-Chinchwad, Nashik, Solapur, Akola, Amravati and Nagpur — are due for polls. 

Now, MNS chief Raj Thackeray has instructed the office bearers to set up Lok Sabha constituency-wise committees to avoid any major blow to the party. Moreover, Amit Thackeray has been given the responsibility of one Lok Sabha constituency. 

In a major setback to the party ahead of the municipal corporation elections, two senior leaders of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) from the Kalyan-Dombivali Municipal Corporations (KMC) abruptly called it quits.

A city unit party meet of MNS office bearers was held on Wednesday, February 3 at the Krishnakunj residence of Raj Thackeray in Dadar. The meeting reviewed the success achieved in the Gram Panchayat elections, and discussed strategies to reach out to as many voters as possible in the run-up to the forthcoming municipal elections. At the same time, it is understood that an important decision was taken in this meeting to prevent the recurrence of KDMC.

While talking to reporters, MNS leader Bala Nandgaonkar said that Raj Thackeray has directed to set up Lok Sabha constituency wise committees to prepare for the upcoming municipal elections. This will help the party to get detailed information about how the party is working in every ward along with the Lok Sabha constituency without any hindrance. Initially, committees will be set up in six Lok Sabha constituencies in Mumbai, followed by Thane, Pune and Nashik.

On being asked about the responsibilities of Amit Thackeray, Bala Nandgaonkar said, "Like other leaders, Amit Thackeray has been entrusted with this responsibility only after reviewing the performance he has shown in the last one year since he took over the leadership of MNS. He too has accepted this responsibility with great confidence.”
