Narayan Rane addressing a press meet at the BJP office in Nariman Point. (Express Photo Amit Chakravarty)The Bombay High Court’s direction Tuesday to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to demolish unauthorised portions of Union Minister and BJP leader Narayan Rane’s eight-storey bungalow in Juhu is seen as another setback for Rane and a new chapter in the bitter feud that he has been involved in with the Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena for 17 years.

Having started out in the Sena when just in his 20s, from the local Shakha at Chembur, the 72-year-old spent most of his rising years in the party. In February 1999, he hit his peak when Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray picked him as the new Chief Minister after Manohar Joshi was asked to step down. But he had to step down in nine months, after the Sena-BJP was voted out of power in the 1999 Assembly elections.

Soon after, Rane had found his ambitions snipped as Balasaheb chose Uddhav as his political successor, and the latter tightened his grip on the party. In 2003, when the Sena, at a convention in Mahabaleshwar, named Uddhav as party’s “executive president”, Rane was one of the very few Sena leaders to oppose the move.

As a result, in 2005, Rane was expelled from the Sena by Balasaheb for “anti-party activities”, on the allegation that he sold party posts and election tickets.

Rane subsequently joined the Congress, taking along a dozen Sena MLAs. He was made the Revenue Minister in the Vilasrao Deshmukh led Congress-NCP government that was voted back to power in the 2004 Assembly elections.
