The newly sworn-in Union Minister of State for Finance Bhagwat Karad met BJP national secretary Pankaja Munde in New Delhi on Sunday and sought her wishes even as his ascent triggered Munde followers to resign collectively from various local bodies in Beed and Ahmednagar districts in Maharashtra.
Recalling his association with the late Gopinath Munde, the father of Pankaja Munde, Karad said the meeting with Pankaja was good.
“I met Pankaja Munde in Delhi. I remembered my association with the late Gopinath Munde who was my leader and now it is Pankaja Munde. She also gave me good wishes,” he tweeted.
Pankaja Munde was in New Delhi to attend a meeting convened by the national leadership.
