Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan and regional president of Congress party Manikrao Thakare will be making a joint visit to Pune in the backdrop of  growing conflicts between a section of local party leaders and supporters of city MP and expelled Congressman Suresh Kalmadi,on December 28.

Both top leaders,who will be attending foundation day programmes of Congress party in the city,are expected to give patient hearing to complains against Kalmadi.

Anti-Kalmadi faction within city Congress recently had launched a sort of campaign against the disgraced MP,who is facing serious charges in CWG scam,by removing his photos from party office among other places.

Party insiders said Congress top brass is likely to make its stand clear on fate of Kalmadi ahead of General Elections.

“With Lok Sabha elections nearing,we expect senior party leaders to come clear on possible candidatures,” a local party leader said.
