01 October 2017, 05:04 PM

Former Maharashtra chief minister Narayan Rane, who recently resigned from Congress, on Sunday announced the launch of a new political party called 'Maharashtra Swabhiman Paksh'.

“I have decided to form a new party, it will be called Maharashtra Swabhimaan Paksh,” said Rane while addressing a press conference. It is said that Rane could join NDA soon. 

Rane's move comes after days of speculation that he may join the BJP. Last week, Rane had also met BJP president Amit Shah in Delhi.

Rane had resigned from the Congress last month while accusing the party of reneging on the promise of making him the chief minister when he had joined the party 12 years ago after leaving the Shiv Sena.

He had also resigned as a member of the Maharashtra Legislative Council.
