Rajeev Satav's wife set to get elected unopposed to Council after BJP withdraws candidate
Congress nominee Pradnya Satav, wife of former Rajya Sabha MP Rajeev Satav who died earlier this year, is all set to get elected to the Maharashtra Legislative Council after the opposition BJP withdrew its candidate against her in a bypoll.
