Danve was backing his son-in-law, Kannad MLA Harshvardhan Jadhav in the election, Khaire alleged here, a charge the BJP denied.
The state had elected 22 BJP members to the Lok Sabha in 2014. In the first list, the BJP has given tickets to 14 of its current Lok Sabha members from Maharashtra while two others have been replaced.
The Shiv Sena chief also came down heavily on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.
The move is likely to jeopardise the BJP’s hold in the 288-member Assembly, in which the party has 122 members and the support of 13 independent candidates, while the Sena has 63.
