Mumbai: The Maharashtra government will recommend the name of actress Urmila Matondkar for her nomination to the state Legislative Council.

Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Friday said that chief minister Uddhav Thackeray will take the decision on this matter.

The statement came after the Maharashtra cabinet discussed on the proposal of recommending Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari the names of 12 candidates for nominations to Upper House of the state legislature.

Raut said, “I have also heard about the speculation that Matondkar will be nominated by the government to the Council. It is the prerogative of the state cabinet, which has authorised CM Uddhav Thackeray to take a decision,” was quoted as saying by The New Indian Express.

Anil Parab when was asked about maintaining the secrecy about the names of the 12 candidates said, “There is no secrecy.
Leaders of the three MVA allies will finalise the names and submit the list to the chief minister, who will forward it to the governor.”

Since June, the 12 council seats have been vacant. According to Article 171 of the Constitution, the governor can nominate 12 members having special knowledge or practical experience in the field of art, literature, science, social service and cooperative movement to the state Legislative Council.

The political parties of Shiv Sena, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Congress will suggest four members each. Apart from Urmila Matondkar, the names of Marathi actor and Shiv Sena leader Aadesh Bandekar, BJP turned NCP leader Eknath Khadse, singer Anand Shinde and farmer leader Raju Shetti are also suggested.

During 2019, Urmila contested the Lok Sabha elections from Mumbai North constituency as a Congress candidate. Later, she had quit the party due to some reasons.

Also recently, she was in the news for actress Kangana Ranaut for her comments and comparing Mumbai with Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK).
