Scoffing at the speculation of reinstating former PWD minister and Marcaim MLA Sudin Dhavlikar in the government, Tanavde said, “there has been no discussion on striking an alliance with MGP. I am 100 percent sure on that. Dhavlikar has neither met me nor the CM and there is no move of taking him in. There is no such move,” Tanavde said categorically.
However, speculations are rife in political circles that BJP was planning to strike an alliance with the MGP and reinstate Sudhin Dhavlikar as PWD minister by December-end.
