Ever since Mr Bhujbal was granted bail in the Rs 880 crore money laundering case last week, there has been speculation over his next political move. I was with the Sena for 25 years; there will be some attachment for sure.

As per doctors' advise, he will again have to be admitted for treatment and surgery, the former deputy chief minister's son said. After leaving Shiv Sena in early '90s he was the loan Congress leader during the Shiv Sena-BJP rule in the state in between 1995-99 who brought the government to knees in the assembly several times. "There is a slim chance of him betraying Pawar now", he said.

Senior NCP leader, granted bail in a money laundering case, was on Thursday discharged from the civic-run here where he underwent treatment for almost a week. The former minister continued to stay in KEM hospital for his ailing health after getting bail from the Bombay High Court.

Asked if there was a possibility of Chhagan shifting his political ideology after having been granted bail, the leader had said it was highly unlikely.

Till he completely recovers, Bhujbal will be taking rest before returning to fully active public life, he added.

Bhujbal met Pawar at the latter's silver oak bungalow and it is being speculated that there was a political discussion among them.

On Tuesday, the Shiv Sena had said that the senior NCP leader's arrest in the money laundering case and subsequent incarceration was "fate's revenge" against him for his bid, when he was a cabinet minister, to put Sena founder Bal Thackeray behind bars.
