Mumbai: Former Maharashtra chief minister Prithviraj Chavan on Sunday said Narayan Rane, who left Congress earlier this week, never understood how the party functions, and advised him to introspect.

"Rane should introspect. He never understood the Congress culture and is now making baseless claims," Chavan told PTI over phone.

While announcing his resignation from Congress, Rane had said he was promised the chief minister's post but never got it. "Prithviraj Chavan even changed my ministry from revenue to industries," Rane had said.

Rubbishing the claim, Chavan said, "Perhaps Rane isn't aware that such decisions are taken at the highest level in Congress, after discussion among top leaders and party office-bearers.

"The situation now is that the BJP is not ready to accept him. He should introspect," Chavan said.

Rane, who quit the Shiv Sena in 2005 over differences with Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray, has said he would decide his next political move before Dussehra on 30 September.
