Later in the day, Latke will submit her nomination as the Thackeray faction candidate for the Andheri East Assembly bypoll.

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has accepted the resignation of Rutuja Latke, the candidate of the Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena faction for the upcoming bypoll at Andheri East Assembly constituency, an official said. By order of the Supreme Court of Bombay, the civil authority accepted the resignation and sent a letter of acceptance to Latke, who was working as an executive assistant (clerk) in BMC, around 10 a.m. on Friday, officials said.

“The BMC had accepted Latke’s resignation on Thursday itself, immediately after the Supreme Court’s designation, but it picked up the letter of acceptance this morning,” an official said.

Later in the day, Latke will submit her nomination as Thackeray faction’s candidate for the Andheri East Assembly bypoll, which was necessitated by the death of her husband and serving on MLA Ramesh Latke earlier this year. Latke had submitted her letter of resignation to the municipality on October 3. Because it was not accepted until October 12, despite repeated requests, she was moved to the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court on Thursday ordered the Mumbai city council to accept her resignation. The last date to submit nominations for the November 3 by-election is October 14.
