Political pandits say, resignation of 20 corporators will be a major setback to the Shiv Sena, which is already battling to get a stronghold in the state.


Ramdas Pawale, Shiv Sena coprorator from Navi Mumbai, said, “We have worked for the party since many years in Navi Mumbai and we all want everyone to work in order to have the party grow and serve the public. But we noticed that there are some individuals who are focused only on their personal growth, not the party’s. We have given our resignation today and do not fear for post.”
