Latur, Jul 11 (PTI) Former BJP MLA Sudhakar Bhalerao joined the Nationalist Congress Party (SP) of Sharad Pawar on Thursday.

Bhalerao, a former MLA from Udgir in Latur, went to the BJP office, submitted his resignation from the party and then joined the NCP (SP) in a function in YB Chavan Centre in Mumbai. The event was attended by Sharad Pawar and other NCP (SP) leaders like Supriya Sule and Jayant Patil.
