Sources inform Minority leader Sabu Daniel may dump NCP and join Shiv Sena. For many years he has been sidelined by the party top leadership. Sabu Daniel belongs to the rich and powerful Malayali community. Being a Christian by faith he commands high respect from the Christian community.
As per Shiv Sena sources he has been assured a State level post in Shiv Sena. Last evening Sabu Daniel was seen in a Shiv Sena Felicitation program with Yuva Sena Chief Aditya Thackeray at Vashi. His presence has set tongues wagging in the political circles across Navi Mumbai.

Ganesh Naik seems to have lost control over his party due to old age and poor health.
