Talking about leaving a party, he said

A local group in the party acted against the Davakhare family during the Thane municipal council elections in 2017. At that time we had taken this matter to the party leadership; however, the other group was spared disciplinary action. This internal politics of side-lining is still continuing at the local level, so I did not have any other option but to leave the party.”

There is a section of people who adore and follow late Vasant Davkhare in Palghar and Thane. Post Niranjan Davkhare’s resignation, there is a huge possibility that these very supporters will start following BJP party.
