Kore declared support to the BJP, locked in a bitter fight with ally Shiv Sena over sharing of power, after meeting Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis here.

Kore’s outfit was part of the BJP-led NDA but he rebelled after the Shahuwadi seat in Kolhapur district was given to the Sena as part of the pre-poll arrangement. The Jan Surajya Shakti leader defeated Satyajit Babasaheb Patil Sarudkar of the Sena by over 27,000 votes in the October 21 Assembly polls.

Kore, being president of Shree Warana Industrial and Educational Complex, Warananagar, is also a former state minister of non-conventional energy and horticulture.

The BJP won 105 seats in the Assembly polls, results of which were announced on October 24, and has been wooing the 13 Independents and MLAs from smaller parties to shore up its strength in the 288-member House. The Sena, which has won 56 seats, is pushing for rotational chief ministership, an idea rejected by the BJP.
