First MNS mayor to be in Nashik: Raj Thackeray

Nashik: Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray today clarified that his party will have its first mayor in Nashik, where it has emerged as the single largest party.

However, the party chief said that he would not reveal with which party he is holding talks to form majority to rule the Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC).

"MNS will not breach people`s trust by taking wrong decisions just for the sake of power. We will deliver good results to the people of Nashik," Raj, who was given a grand welcome by the partymen in Nashik, when he came here this morning, told reporters.

The MNS chief also said that he had come to the city specially to congratulate the winning MNS corporators and to thank the citizens for supporting his party.

During the just-concluded polls, MNS emerged as the single largest party in the city dethroning arch-rival Shiv Sena from power by bagging 40 seats in the 122-member body.

However, the party is not in a position to rule the civic body alone and will have to take help of some other parties. Congress has won 15 seats, NCP 20, Shiv Sena 19, BJP 14, CPM 3, while independents have won 11 seats.
