Narayan Rane to announce next move today
Veteran politician and Konkan strongman Narayan Rane will announce his next political move in Mumbai on Sunday. Rane (65), had resigned from the Congress and the Maharashtra Legislative Council on September 21.

Rane had claimed that the Congress had gone back on its promise of making him the chief minister and over the years he was sidelined in the party.

"I do not go for posts, the posts come to me," the 65-year-old firebrand politician had said addressing a news conference at his home district from Sindhudurg.

Thereafter, he toured some parts of Maharashtra and met his followers. He also visited New Delhi and had a meeting with BJP president Amit Shah.

Rane is expected to float his own political outfit. It is, however, not yet clear, whether Rane would join the BJP-Shiv Sena government and become a minister. In fact, the Shiv Sena does not see eye to eye with Rane.

Rane started off with the Shiv Sena and went on to become the revenue minister and then briefly the chief minister. He then became the leader of Opposition.

Shiv Sena founder Bal Thackeray had to expel him from the party for raising a banner of revolt against Uddhav Thackeray. Subsequently, he joined the Congress and became a minister in the Democratic Front government.
