Sharad Pawar, the leader of the Nationalist Congress Party, denied any rumors on Tuesday regarding the future political plans of his nephew and fellow party leader Ajit Pawar. He also stated that no gathering of NCP legislators had been organized by anyone.
Ajit Pawar on Monday denied the reports that he had called a meeting of MLAs on Tuesday amidst the rumors of his increasing closeness to the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Maharashtra.
Sharad Pawar, while speaking to reporters in Purandar, Pune district, Maharashtra, said that the topics being discussed by the media are not on his mind.
“There is no importance of all these discussions. The reports have no meaning. I can say about NCP that all our colleagues are of one thinking of how to make the party stronger, and there is no other thought in anybody’s mind,” the party chief said.
Reports of a meeting of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) MLAs being convened in the city were refuted by Sharad Pawar, a member of the MVA alliance, which includes the Shiv Sena (UBT) and the Congress. Pawar denied any such gathering had been called and stated that no one had requested it.
“The party’s state president (Jayant Patil) is busy with a local election in his region, and another party leader Ajit Pawar is also busy with the work of the party and providing guidance to everyone,” he said.
Last week, speculation began to emerge regarding Ajit Pawar’s next political move when he unexpectedly canceled his planned engagements and made statements that were interpreted as being supportive of the BJP and Chief Minister Eknath Shinde’s faction. The BJP is a part of Shinde’s current administration.
Sanjay Raut, a leader of Shiv Sena (United Bharatiya Thackeray), asserted on Sunday that Sharad Pawar had recently informed Uddhav Thackeray that his party would never form an alliance with the BJP, even if any individual chose to do so.
