Naresh Mhaske: Who is Naresh Mhaske, the right hand man of CM Eknath Shinde who rose from the grassroots level?

In the results of Lok Sabha elections 2024, yesterday everyone’s eyes were on the result of Thane. The Thane seat was a matter of prestige for Chief Minister Eknath Shinde. Because Thane is the home constituency of Chief Minister Eknath Shinde. If the decision of Thane had gone against it, the opposition would have created a ruckus. The Shiv Sena Thackeray faction had fielded sitting MP Rajan Vikhre from Thane. Two years ago, Eknath Shinde had called for rebellion while being in Shiv Sena. At that time, all the leaders of Thane including 40 MLAs had supported Eknath Shinde. The only exception is MP Rajan Vikhe. He remained in the Thackeray group. He was pitted against Naresh Mhaske. Naresh Mhaske was made the candidate from Thane by Eknath Shinde’s Shiv Sena.

Voting took place on 20 May. After this, the picture was such that Rajan Vikhare had a strong hold on him. Most exit polls predicted that he would once again become Thane’s MP. But on the day of the result, the opposite picture was seen. Naresh Mhaske registered a huge victory by a margin of more than 2 lakh votes. It was certain that Rajan would win. In fact, Naresh Mhaske killed the game.
