Mumbai: The suspense over Pankaja Munde’s next move has increased after the BJP leader removed the party name from her Twitter bio Monday. On Monday, Ms Munde removed all details from her Twitter bio, including the word “BJP” and the description of her political journey.
Incidentally, in her recent tweets, she also congratulated new chief minister Uddhav Thackeray. Sena MP Sanjay Raut further raised speculation by claiming that many leaders are keen on joining the Uddhav Thackeray-led party.
