BRUSSELS-Under the Super Power Axis

Congress Chief Vasantrao Dada Patil and Chief Minister V P Naile, see in the success of Chinai the beginning of inroads into the ruling Congress, particularly in Ratnagiri district of the backward Konkan region and in Kolha- pur district. S K Patil hails from Konkan and the district has had a sturdy sympathy for him. It is possible that the defiance was aided by the withdrawal of Vijay Singh Pardesh's candidature. Pardesh, a youth Congress leader from Poona, whose nomination was filed for a dummy candidature, refused to withdraw from the contest, and declared himself an independent. No disciplinary action was taken against him for violating Party discipline. This may have emboldened legislators from the ruling Congress to vote against the Party's mandate.
