In a fresh jolt to the Opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) an independent MLA who supported the party after the Oct. 2019 Assembly elections, joined the ruling Shiv Sena, here on Saturday.
The legislator is Geeta Jain, 56 – who was elected as a BJP rebel candidate from Mira-Bhayander constituency of Thane district – and is regarded as an influential leader among the business community.
She visited ‘Matoshri’ in Bandra to a welcome by Shiv Sena President and Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, Tourism Minister Aditya Thackeray and other leaders, as per a tweet by the party.
The matter came as a further setback to the BJP, hours after another stalwart from Jalgaon and former minister Eknath Khadse left the party after 40 years to join NCP on Friday.
A former BJP Mayor of Mira-Bhayander Municipal Corporation (MBMC), Jain was associated actively with the party for over a decade.
On the eve of the 2019 assembly polls, peeved at being denied a party ticket, she had contested the elections as independent and emerged a giant-killer- trouncing both, the BJP strongman and realtor Narendra Mehta as well as the Congress heavyweight Muzaffar Hussain.
However, after the polls threw up a fractured mandate, she had thrown her weight with the BJP and Fadnavis, but later the political equations changed dramatically as the Shiv Sena-Nationalist Congress Party-Congress formed the Maha Vikas Aghadi government in Nov. 2019.
A Sena leader said that Jain had around a dozen meetings with Thackeray and other leaders in the past 10 months before deciding to take the final plunge, and her entry would “help strengthen the Shiv Sena base” in Thane-Palghar industrial belt, adjacent to Mumbai.

HC raps BMC, orders compensation for demolition at Kangana Ranaut’s bungalow
In a major relief for Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut, the Bombay High Court on Friday quashed the BMC’s demolition notice and subsequent action to undertake partial demolition at her Bandra bungalow in September, and ordered suitable compensation to her.
A Division Bench comprising Justices SJ Kathawalla and RI Chagla said that Ranaut can take steps to get regularised her property and make it habitable. The court directed that if Ranaut makes an application for getting her building plans approved, it would be decided within 4 weeks.
Reserving its order on the quantum of compensation payable to the actress, the court appointed a valuer to decide on the compensation amount.
The court said that the BMC proceeded on “wrongful grounds” in the case that was against the citizens’ rights, a malice in law and reactionary in nature.
Mumbai Mayor Kishori Pednekar said that she would comment after consulting the BMC Legal Department but declined to say whether it would challenge the High Court ruling in the Supreme Court.
The Opposition Bharatiya Janata Party leaders like Kirit Somaiya and Ram Kadam welcomed the court verdict and slammed the BMC, Municipal Commissioner IS Chahal, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and Maha Vikas Aghadi government, saying it was a big blow to them and demanded the Mayor’s resignation.
A BMC team had undertaken partial demolition at Ranaut’s bungalow on September 9, which sparked off massive political furore after which she moved the Bombay HC to challenge the civic body’s move, terming it vendetta.
