Mumbai, Jun 6 (UNI) As a fallout of the attack on the residence of the Loksatta editor Kumar Ketkar, the NCP today issued a showcause notice to Vinayak Mete, one of its prominent leader.
Mr Mete is the founder president of the Shiva Sangram organization which was behind the attack yesterday. He is also vice president of state NCP.
Party general secretary Gurunath Kulkarni told mediapersons at the party office that Mr Mete has to reply within seven days as to why action should not be taken against him for perpetrating the much-condemned attack on the residence of the prominent journalist.
Mr Kulkarni said Mete had crossed all limits for the party by the act.
The party is currently deliberating on its prospects in next elections in the light of the delimitation of constituencies.
Asked about it, Mr Kulkarni said the Congress would be advised to share 50 per cent seats with NCP in the coming Lok Sabha elections.
About the assembly, the NCP general secretary pointed out that while the party is not represented in three districts of the state, namely Sindhudurg, Chandrapur and Aurangabad, the Congress does not have any MLA in 11 districts of Maharashtra.
The state NCP unit is taking stock of all parliamentary constituencies since yesterday. The meetings will go on till next week.
