PUNE: Rebel and former President of Republican Party of India (RPI) workers union of Maharashtra, Mahesh Shinde has made an announcement to form a new organisation for unorganised workers.

He said, “We worked under RPI leader Athavale but BJP only took advantage of RPI and Dalit community. The Dalit community did not get benefits. So, we have decided to leave the party. We joined the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) as it is a secular party and we have decided to work for the party. We will work for unorganised workers across the state.”
