NCP leader Aher quits party, rejoins BJP

September 23, 2009 15:45 IST

In a pre-poll setback to the Nationalist Congress Party, its leader and former Maharashtra minister Daulatrao Aher has quit the party and rejoined BJP.

Aher, who was a minister in the Sena-BJP regime in the 90s, was welcomed into the party fold by BJP general secretary Gopinath Munde and state president Nitin Gadkari at a function here late last night.

Shrigonda co-operative sugar factory chairman Shivajirao Nagawde also joined BJP at the function.
