Ganesh Naik born September 15, 1950 is an Indian politician. He is the Nationalist Congress Party member of the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly who represented Belapur in the past,[1] and was the Thane Guardian Minister in the state government.[2] He was the minister of Labour, excise and environment in the previous government.

Vidhan Sabha election 2014[edit]

In the Maharashtra state assembly polls, results for which were announced on 19 October 2014, Naik lost to the BJP candidate by around 1,500 votes. Manda Vijay Mhatre, the winning candidate had left NCP just before the elections, opposing the family rule of the Naik clan in Navi Mumbai. Naik's son, Sandeep Naik, however, was re-elected to the Airoli seat by margin of over 7,000 votes. Earlier in May parliamentary elections, his other son, Dr Sanjeev Naik, had lost his seat to the Shiv Sena by a huge margin.[citation needed]
