Eknath Khadse, senior BJP leader said the statement of Chandrakant Patil is 100 per cent correct.
Khadse handled revenue, agriculture and several other crucial portfolios in Devendra Fadnavis cabinet before resigning in 2016 over accusations of impropriety in a land deal.
Gote, who recently joined the NCP, dubbed the then CM's official residence, where 'conspiracies' were planned according to him, as 'Varsha night club'.
While Munde had skipped crucial party meetings over past few days, Khadse has met NCP Chief Sharad Pawar and Shiv Sena president and CM Uddhav Thackeray over past two days.
The comment came three days after the former Maharashtra minister issued a veiled warning to the party leadership that he would look at "other options" if his "humiliation" continued.
The 67-year old, who has been vocal of late against some of the party's decisions after the BJP's below-par show in the October Assembly results, was denied a ticket.
Khadse met Maharashtra BJP chief Chandrakant Patil after a meeting of the party's North Maharashtra core committee in Jalgaon.

Pankaja Munde, daughter of late BJP stalwart Gopinath Munde, is also in sulk since her loss in the bitterly contested elections.
Yesterday, Fadnavis resigned in the afternoon as Maharashtra Chief Minister merely three days after he took oath in a controversial turn of events.
The senior BJP leader said his party and the Shiv Sena should have amicably resolved the issues between them, post the verdict of the October assembly elections.
The Shiv Sena has claimed top leaders of the party and the BJP had 'agreed' on sharing the chief minister's post on a rotational basis and 50:50 distribution of portfolio.
The BJP and the Shiv Sena are the main constituents of the ruling alliance in Maharashtra, which goes to polls on October 21.
Interestingly, Namita Mundada, who joined the saffron party after the NCP chief Sharad Pawar announced her candidature from Kej seat, is in the BJP's second list.
In Mumbai, speculations are rife among BJP workers about former NCP leader Rahul Narvekar being fielded from Colaba constituency instead of sitting MLA Raj Purohit.
