NCP's Mumbai unit chief Sachin Ahir recently quit the party to join the Shiv Sena, while Jaydutt Kshirsagar, NCP leader and former Maharashtra minister, joined the Shiv Sena in May. Chitra Wagh, the NCP's women's wing president, was reportedly also likely to join the BJP.

Several Opposition leaders on Monday attended a meeting to deliberate the successive defections. Reports said that the NCP’s Maharashtra president Jayant Patil, MNS chief Raj Thackeray and others met in Mumbai.

Maharashtra water resources minister Girish Mahajan saying that at least 50 MLAs of the Congress and NCP were in touch with the BJP ahead of the Assembly elections. He said that “Some 50 MLAs of Congress and NCP are in touch with the BJP. Wagh had expressed her desire to join BJP a month ago, claiming she had no future left in her parent party. The MLAs are requesting that they wanted to join the BJP ahead of the assembly elections. Congress is in the shambles and in the next couple of weeks, the NCP will look weaker."
