The proposal was seconded by senior party leaders Madhukar Pichad, Hassan Mushrif, Anil Deshmukh and Anna Dange.
Mushrif said he hoped Tatkare will ensure that NCP gets the post of chief minister after the state Assembly elections, slated later this year.
All speakers lauded Tatkare’s organisational skills and his rise from humble beginnings as sarpanch and Raigad zilla parishad and municipal council president to holding ministerial portfolios like finance and water resources.
Party chief Sharad Pawar and senior leader Praful Patel were present on the occasion.
