Vikhe Patil who is in Congress till date was present in the meeting to review preparations for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's rally in Ahmednagar.

Like son, the father is also not far behind. The veteran Congress leader and leader of the opposition in the state Assembly Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil is all set to join the BJP.  

On Thursday, Vikhe Patil attended a meeting chaired by his son and BJP candidate From Ahmednagar constituency Sujay Vikhe Patil to review preparations for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's rally in Ahmednagar. The Congress stalwart, is likely joining the BJP in the presence of Modi at his rally on Friday. To take the stock of the situation and the overall arrangements, the meeting of BJP workers was held. Vikhe Patil who is in Congress till date was present in the meeting till the end,  

Sujay Vikhe Patil was earlier keen on being nominated by the Congress from the Ahmednagar constituency, which has traditionally been contested by its ally NCP. He joined the BJP last month after the NCP refused to vacate the seat for his electoral debut, and was subsequently given a ticket by the saffron party. He is pitted against NCP's Sangram Jagtap in the much hyped contest.

Meanwhile, the NCP has demanded action against Radhakrishna Vikhe-Patil, alleging that he is not campaigning for its candidate in the Ahmednagar constituency. Vikhe-Patil’s son Sujay is a BJP candidate and he is openly  supporting him. Peeved by his son’s claims for a ticket denied by the NCP, Vikhe-Patil has already made it clear that he will not campaign for the NCP in Ahmednagar.

In a letter to state Congress chief Ashok Chavan, NCP spokesperson Ankush Kakade said it is very serious that Vikhe-Patil is campaigning for his son Sujay instead of the NCP’s nominee Sangram Jagtap. He has been openly telling the media that the candidate of the Yuti (BJP-Shiv Sena-RPI alliance) will emerge victorious in Ahmednagar.
