BJP’s four-time corporator and Ruling Party leader of Nagpur Municipal Corporator (NMC) Sandip Joshi from Nagpur is all set to become next Mayor of the city. Ruling Party in the NMC- BJP has nominated Joshi, a close friend of ex-CM Devendra Fadnavis, as mayoral candidate.
Joshi on Monday filed nomination form for the elections slated on November 22. With BJP having clear majority in 155-member house, Joshi’s election as city’s first citizen will be a one-side affair. He will be city’s 54th Mayor. Surprisingly, BJP also announced Joshi will be mayor for only half of remaining term and will be replaced with another BJP senior corporator Dayashankar Tiwari. Sandip Jadhav has been made ruling party leader and Manisha Kothe will be deputy mayor.
