"After a meeting with the party's national president something can be said. There will be discussions on the matter," Pandey told ANI.
Pandey added that if Rane accepts the BJP's ideology, he will be considered.
A former chief minister during the Shiv Sena-BJP government, Rane defected to Congress in 2005 after criticising Shiv Sena founder Bal Thackeray's son and political heir Uddhav.
He was a minister in successive Congress governments till 2014 when the party lost power to the BJP.
Rane lost the last Assembly elections in 2014 and a by-poll in Mumbai's Bandra.
He quit the party after state leadership dissolved the Sindhudurg unit dominated by his supporters. (ANI)
