Congress corporator Ravindra Phatak, the nominee of the Democratic Front, was today elected chairman of the Standing Committee of the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC), thus putting an end to the seven-month-long wait since the new body was elected in Feburary.

In the elections to the 16-member Committee, Mr Phatak and the Shiv Sena-BJP nominee Vilas Kamble polled eight votes each, consequently, the returning officer A Deshmukh had to resort to drawing of lots, in which Mr Kamble lost to Mr Phatak. Mr Phatak, a blue-eyed boy of Congress leader Narayan Rane, was the chairman of the standing committee for one term in 2005-2006. The Congress got the office of the standing committee after about 20 years during which period the Shiv Sena-BJP enjoyed power. The election to the office of the chairman of the standing committee was caught up in the legal tangle due to various litigations. After the announcement of result, the Congress-NCP activists burst fire crakers and distributed sweets to celebrate the victory of Mr Phatak. Congress city president Bal Purnekar, his NCP counterpart MLA Jitendra Awhad and leader of the opposition Hanumant Jagdale unanimously said 'We will clean up the mess created by the Shiv Sena and BJP in the last 20 years and give better facilities to the citizens of Thane.'
