The Gavtes of Digha created an uproar in the political corridors of Navi Mumbai when they met Chief Minister Devendra Fadavnis.
According to sources NCP corporators of Digha Naveen Gavte, Aparna Gavte and Deepa Gavte were disappointed the way NCP leaders of Navi Mumbai handled the Digha demolition issue. With the threat of all three losing their corporator-ship due to sheltering illegal construction, sources reveal they will shift loyalties to Shiv Sena.
Along with the Gavtes, reliable sources reveal that there is unrest in many other NCP corporators who are unhappy with the way the Smart City issue boomeranged for NCP. Worried about the anti-public interest image of NCP, these corporators too are reportedly planning to rebel and shift loyalties. In such a scenario, political experts say that NCP might just lose its fortress in Navi Mumbai and possibilities of a change in the office of Mayor cannot be ruled out.
