NEW DELHI: Sharad Pawar, the NCP supremo, has addressed the recent controversy surrounding his meeting with his estranged nephew Ajit Pawar in Maharashtra. He stated that the meeting was merely a family gathering. The meeting, which took place on August 12 at the residence of businessman Atul Chordiya in Pune, has caused quite a stir in the political circles of Maharashtra’s opposition alliance.

Meeting Raises Eyebrows

The reported “secret meeting” between Sharad Pawar and Ajit Pawar has led to tensions within the opposition coalition in Maharashtra. Congress leader Prithviraj Chavan claimed that a central cabinet position was offered to Sharad Pawar or his daughter Supriya Sule. However, Sule denied these reports, stating that she has not received any such offer. She also clarified that she is not in touch with any Congress leaders in Maharashtra and is only in contact with senior Congress leaders at the national level.
Sule further mentioned that she is unaware of the details of the meeting between Sharad Pawar and Ajit Pawar. She stated that the Pawar and Chordiya families have had a long-standing association, which explains their meeting.

Opposition’s Objections

Both the Congress and Shiv Sena have expressed their objections to the frequent meetings between Sharad Pawar and Ajit Pawar. Maharashtra Congress president Nana Patole stated that his party does not approve of such secretive meetings between the Pawar family members and finds it concerning. An editorial in the Shiv Sena’s mouthpiece ‘Saamana’ criticized the meetings, stating that they are tarnishing the image of the NCP founder.
Despite these objections, Sharad Pawar and Ajit Pawar continue to meet regularly.
