Ranjitsinh, who was a Rajya Sabha MP of the NCP, said he was disappointed with the top NCP leadership. This is a second setback to the Congress-NCP combine, after Sujay Vikhe Patil, the son of Maharashtra leader of opposition Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil, joined the BJP recently.

There is speculation that Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil tendered his resignation as leader of opposition to Congress president Rahul Gandhi on moral grounds.
