Milind Deora Bids farewell to Congress, Set to Join Eknath Shinde-Led Sena Today, ‘Ending my family’s 55-year relationship’

Announcing the decision, Deora wrote on social media platform X: “Today marks the conclusion of a significant chapter in my political journey. I have tendered my resignation from the primary membership of @INCIndia, ending my family’s 55-year relationship with the party. I am grateful to all leaders, colleagues & karyakartas for their unwavering support over the years.”

Deora lost two Lok Sabha elections in a row, to Arvind Sawant of the Shiv Sena. He is unhappy about the chance that the Mumbai South seat could go to the Uddhav Thackeray-led Sena under the Maha Vikas Aghadi seat sharing arrangements.

Deora recently released a video in which he tells his followers and workers to stay cool and tells Sena not to claim any Lok Sabha seat until the seat sharing talks are over. He said his family had worked in the district for more than 40 years, and that his late father, Murli Deora, was one of them.

Some people say that Deora and Chief Minister Eknath Shinde will also go to the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland.

Aaditya Thackeray and the Uddhav Thackeray-led Sena started the election campaign in Mumbai from the Mumbai South Lok Sabha seat and said that Sawant would be their candidate in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. This made him very angry.

A few months ago, there were rumors that Deora might join the breakaway Nationalist Congress Party group run by Ajit Pawar. This was because of rumors that he would be meeting with Rajya Sabha MP Praful Patel.

Then Deora put an end to all the rumors and said that he would be in Congress.
