On behalf of the Panvel BJP, Raigad District President MLA Prashant Thakur congratulated Mhatre and gave the credit to all teachers.
“Three times MLA Prashant Thakur does not have arrogance. But when Balaram Patal became an MLA, he became arrogant,” said Arunsheth Bhagat, Taluk President- BJP-Panvel.
