Former Mayor of Kalyan Harishchandra Patil died of heart attack this morning, his family members said. Patil 62, leaves behind his wife and two sons. He was closely associated with the former MP and Lt. Governor of Andaman Nicobar Late Kapse besides being a prominent political figure in the Kalyan Dombivili region. He was also the leader of the house and opposition in the Kalyan-Dombivali Municipal Corporation (KDMC). Patil was instrumental in demanding the water transport and parallel road between Thane and Kalyan to the railway line.

His funeral was attended by a large number of mourners, including City Mayor Rajendra Devlekar, Municipal Commissioner E Ravinderan, MP Dr Srikant Shinde, former Minister and BJP leader Jagannath Patil at Thakurli crematorium.

In 1974, he was elected to the Dombivili Municipal Council as the councilor of the PWP, then in 1976, he joined the Janasangh under the leadership of Krishnarao Dhulap. Between 1995-2005 he was the corporator of the BJP party and Mayor of the sena-BJP alliance and also MLA of the Kalyan constituency.

When Patil was refused the party ticket, he joined the MNS occupying post of city unit president of the party for some time.

However, in the recent past he was away from politics and carried his own work and activities.

A condolence meeting will be held on May 4. Thousands of people from Kalyan and Dombivili and surrounding areas attended his funeral.UNI XR NP SB RAI1730
