MLAs who left Shiv Sena and went to other parties had to lose in the next elections. Vidarbha has a history of ending politics for some. Therefore, concerns are being expressed about the political future of the five MLAs who went with Shinde.
Chhagan Bhujbal had revolted in the army in 1991. At that time, out of 18 MLAs who left the party along with Bhujbal, six were from Vidarbha. In it, Dr. Rajendra Gode (Buldhana), Krishnarao Ingle (Jalgaon Jamod), Dalu Guruji (Borgaon Manju), Dr. Jagannath Dhone (Akot), Pradip Wadnere (Badnera) and Namdev Donadkar (Bramhapuri). All of them had joined the Congress along with Bhujbal. With the exception of Krishnarao Ingle in the 1995 Assembly general elections, all were defeated. Special is Dr. Dhone was not nominated by the Congress. Pradip Wadnere, who won from Badnera in 1990, was a young face of the army. Similarly, Dr. who won from Buldhana. Rajendra Gode was an educated face of the army. However, his subsequent politics came to an end due to his election defeat. Shiv Sena had won all the seats except Bramhapuri.

Dr. Gode was made Home Minister by the Congress. However, he was defeated by Vijayraj Shinde of the Sena. He had resigned from the Assembly before contesting the by-elections and joined the Congress. Vadettiwar and Bharasakle’s strong grip on the constituency did not hurt them. But Bharasakle later had to leave the Congress and join the BJP.
Ramtek’s then Sena MP Subodh Mohite was also hit by the split. He had resigned from the Parliament and joined the Congress. He lost the by-election. After that Mohite changed many parties. Although he is currently a nationalist, he has not had much political influence in the past. Now, along with Shinde, there are five MLAs from Vidarbha who are sponsored by three parties and two parties. As the rebels have a history of defeat, discussions have begun about their political future.
