- Sharad Pawar’s big statement on Maharashtra’s power crisis
- Pawar said – BJP has played a role in the power crisis
- Disagree with nephew Ajit on BJP’s role
Maharashtra Political Crisis: The political crisis of Maharashtra is now standing at an exciting juncture. Shiv Sena’s rebel leader Eknath Shinde has released the picture of 49 MLAs with him. Shide has filled the hook. It has been clearly told to the MLAs that they do not need to be afraid of anyone, there is a big force behind them. But in the meantime, NCP president Sharad Pawar said that the fate of the Maha Vikas Aghadi government in Maharashtra will be decided in the assembly.
Nephews Ajit and Sharad Pawar spoke differently
He was replying to a question whether the MVA has now come down to a minority as the Shinde-led rebel faction has claimed the support of 37 Shiv Sena MLAs and 10 independents. Asked about Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar’s statement that he does not see the role of BJP in the rebellion within Shiv Sena, Pawar said he does not agree with his nephew. Sharad Pawar said, “Ajit Pawar must have said this because he does not know BJP leaders from outside Maharashtra. I know them. Even Eknath Shinde has said that a national party has assured him of all possible help.
“Role played by BJP in power crisis”
There has been political turmoil in Maharashtra due to the rebellion of Shiv Sena government minister Eknath Shinde and several Shiv Sena MLAs. Meanwhile, addressing the press conference, Pawar said the BJP has played a role in the crisis faced by the Uddhav Thackeray-led government. “The fate of the MVA government will be decided in the assembly and not in Guwahati,” Pawar said. MVA will prove its majority on the floor of the House.
“Rebel MLAs have to come back to Mumbai”
He said other national parties like Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), Communist Party of India Marxist (CPI-M), Communist Party of India (CPI), Congress and NCP have no role in destabilizing the MVA. He further said that Shinde was only referring to the BJP. The former Union minister said that the rebel MLAs will have to come back to Mumbai and face the Assembly. He said that BJP leaders from Gujarat and Assam will not come here to guide him. Pawar also denied the allegations of rebel Shiv Sena MLAs that they faced difficulties in getting funds for their constituencies as the finance ministry is controlled by NCP’s Ajit Pawar and he discriminated against them.
