The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has selected Murji Patel as its candidate for the Andheri East Assembly by-election on November 3. He is the joint candidate of the BJP and the Shiv Sena faction led by Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde. Patel will submit his nomination papers on Friday, the last day he does so.

“I am a BJP employee and do what the party asks me to do,” Patel said before submitting the nomination papers here. He was accompanied by Ashish Shelar, the president of the BJP unit in Mumbai, and MLA Nitesh Rane. Deepak Kesarkar, minister and spokesman for the Eknath Shinde camp of the Shiv Sena, was also present.

On Thursday, Kesarkar had said that the BJP and the Balasahebanchi Shiv Sena led by CM Shinde would draft a joint candidate for the parliamentary poll. From the Uddhav Thackeray faction of the Shiv Sena, Rutuja Latke is ready to submit her nomination paper. The death of her husband and incumbent MLA Ramesh Latke earlier this year necessitated the by-election.
