VAIBHAV GAIKWAD WAS THE FIRST PARTYWORKER TO ADVICE GANESH NAIK TO EXIT THE NCP
A hard-hitting critic of NCP, Vaibhav Gaikwad has been made into politics, like many others by Ganesh Naik. In the year 2014, post the assembly elections, Vaibhav Gaikwad had decided to join the BJP.

In the years that followed, he constantly remained an advocate of BJP openly stating that he wants Ganesh Naik to join the BJP.
BJP ALWAYS GOT MORE VOTES THAN NCP IN DIVYA GAIKWAD’S WARDS
In both assembly and parliamentary polls of 2014 & 2019, BJP always got more votes than NCP in Divya Gaikwads’ ward. In all meetings with Ganesh Naik, Divya Gaikwad and Vaibhav Gaikwad always justified the same by saying that citizens of their ward have faith only in Prime Minister Narendra Modi and hence always choose BJP over NCP. The sited this as another reason why they wanted Ganesh Naik to desperately quit the NCP party and enter the BJP party. He had said this to the media as well on several occasions.
SELFISH MOTIVES OF POLITICAL GAINS REASON FOR GHARWAPSI IN NCP
Political circles and beyond it – everyone knew that Vaibhav Gaikwad & Divya Gaikwad spoke against the boot-licking political culture of NCP. Vaibhav Gaikwad’s jubilance was evident when Ganesh Naik entered the BJP – and so did he in the presence of former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis & NCP Maharashtra State President Chandrakant Patil. Hence, the sudden U-turn came as shocker to many. Political analysts say the primary reason for this U-turn against BJP could be the political aspirations of the Gaikwads who see this as an opportunity to enter the second league of their political innings. Sources reveal that they have been assured of plum posts in the NCP.
