Mumbai, Apr 4 (PTI) Tuljapur BJP MLA Rana Jagjitsinh Patil's wife Archana Patil on Thursday joined the Nationalist Congress Party led by Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar and will be fielded from Osmanabad Lok Sabha seat.


The NCP's state unit chief Sunil Tatkare welcomed her into the party and announced her candidature.

Rana Jagjitsinh Patil, who had unsuccessfully contested the Osmanabad Lok Sabha seat in 2019 on an NCP ticket against Om Prakash Nimbalkar of the united Shiv Sena, switched to the BJP during the last assembly polls.
