Pimpri: After completion of one year in opposition at the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC), the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leadership has decided to remove the Leader of the Opposition Yogesh Behl. 

According to sources, NCP leader Ajit Pawar has finalised the name of corporator Nana Kate for the post. A formal announcement will be made next week.

One year after the civic elections, the ruling BJP replaced many of their office-bearers to give the maximum of corporators administrative experience. NCP is also following the same trend and Pawar decided to give the opportunity to another corporator as leader of the opposition (LOP). 

Pimple Saudagar corporator Nana Kate is a second-time corporator from NCP. His wife was elected as a corporator for the second time on the party ticket.

Meanwhile, NCP corporator Datta Sane is keen to be elected as LOP. He is insisting on the party leadership for giving him preference however, the party is likely to go ahead with Kate, keeping in mind Sane’s outspoken nature.
