Should NCP back down on moral grounds?

Ajit Pawar said that we will talk to CM Thackeray, how will the government work in the future. He said that we do not have the right to speak about the suspension of MLAs.

“No minister-MLA had any problem”

Ajit Pawar further said that no minister MLA had any deficiency or problem, after becoming a minister, he had the right to everything. Corona happened in the middle, so we could not meet properly. The rebel MLAs belong to Shiv Sena, 40 are theirs… what should I say on that? He said that even today the government is in the majority and even today it has the right to take decisions. In the press conference, he said that those people are expressing no confidence on the deputy speaker but there should be a basis behind it. Many times it happens, if there is anything in Aadhaar, then no confidence will be valid with the deputy speaker.

Seniors may have a different opinion than mine as they know more than me on many issues.
